Once I'm sure I've settled in an area, I'm planning on buying a house and using that technology. It's another possibility that's being looked at for wider scale energy generation. Deep geothermal energy capture. It'll never run out and is about as predictable as you can get. Iceland have been using it for years. One of the most respected Universities here are looking into possible places to site it to help us meet our target to supply 100% of electricity demand with renewable energy in Scotland by 2020.
