Posted: 9:14 AM- HONEYVILLE – Shoshone Nation members are turning up the heat in Box Elder County – with a geothermal plant.
Tribal leaders from the Northwestern Band of Shoshone Nation broke ground Thursday on a 100-megawatt power plant.
The power will be sold to the city of Riverside, Calif.
It’s the first of five geothermal plants planned by a partnership of the Shoshone Nation and investors.
Shoshone chairman Bruce Parry says his people once used the region’s hot water when they camped in winter. Now, he says, the tribe is back to its original energy source.
The first steam plant is planned for a spot near Honeyville, about 25 mile south of the Utah-Idaho border.
