Geothermal energy is natural energy obtained by tapping the earths heat itself. It involves drilling deep inside in to the earth’s crust and as a result tapping heat. Geothermal energy is preferred due to the fact that it involves minimal operating costs.
This in turn means that there is a low cost of energy derived from harnessing this energy.Geothermal energy is mainly disliked due to the fact that it involves huge capital outlays before the plants can be made operational. This discourages economies to invest in this kind of technology.
