How is it done?

The name geo means earth and thermal means temperature related. That means geothermal energy means heat from the ground. That includes hot springs, volcanos, and hot rocks.The geothermal power plants force cool water into hot rocks or hot water to make steam. As the hot steam rises, it turns turbines. The mechanical energy is then converted to Electromagnetic energy through generators. Electromagnetic energy is the enrgy we use to power our homes.
