The Gerlach Geothermal Development Project is a Geothermal project that started in 2020.

The project would add two 24 megawatt (total) power plants with 23 wells, 4.6 miles of pipeline, roads and a powerline to the San Emidio Desert plants.[1]

Some Gerlach residents are concerned about the effect the plants and wells would have on the viewshed, night skies and water supplies.

On October 1, 2020, the BLM accepted pre-scoping comments for 60 days.[2]
