At the end of last year, on a leased property two hours southeast of Regina, Saskatchewan, a local company, Deep Earth Energy Corp., began preparations for Canada’s first geothermal power plant.

According to CanGEA, the Canadian Geothermal Energy Association, Canada has enough geothermal potential to supply at least 5% of its electricity via geothermal. So why is this only Canada’s first plant?
