The article reports on the effort of Bernie Karl, owner of the Chena Hot Springs resort in central Alaska, who uses geothermal electricity enough to light and heat the resort's buildings and run a greenhouse and café. Aside from the geothermal electricity, Chena Hot Springs has installed wind power up on the top of the mountain and solar power on its weather station. U.S. President-elect Barack Obama wants 25 percent of the nation's electricity to come from renewable sources by 2025.
