Star Peak Geothermal is OME’s second project to reach commercial operation which was achieved in September 2022. OME acquired the project from Presco Energy in 2017 and ultimately repowered the original Rye Patch project. The plant consists of a single steam unit and 4 ORC units with a total nameplate capacity of 14 MW. The project owns a short transmission line to the Thunder Mountain Substation. OME utilized the existing wellfield assets and drilled an additional well and installed a steam treatment system to supply adequate geothermal resource to the plant. OME’s Resource Team strongly believes there is additional geothermal resource that has yet to be tapped leaving room for an expansion project at Star Peak.
