Today a large part of the energy needs of hydroelectric power and fossil energy sources are provided. Geothermal energy is a source of renewable energy, alternative energy sources to fossil fuels is the case. In this study, the use of geothermal energy in the case of the lumber drying process, the cost of drying was investigated. As a result of research and cost analysis of geothermal energy has been compared with other types of energy and geothermal energy as a result of comparing the cost of the lumber drying the lowest cost can be reduced to approximately 19% was observed.
