The article on growing bananas in Iceland started me thinking about Geothermal possibilities right here in BC.

It turns out that EnergyBC has done a bit of research on the subject with promising results. Lots of information on Geothermal Energy and potential sites in BC can be found  at this site:

Apparently BC is on the  “Pacific Rim’s Ring of Fire” , (sounds scary to me ) and according to DESMOGCANADA, we have enough Geothermal energy resources to power the entire province.

Now I just have to cross reference the geothermal areas with maximum average annual sunlight areas of BC to find the perfect spot for my dream greenhouse !
