Reno's Peppermill Resort Completes Geothermal Energy Project

Sep 6, 2011

Peppermill Resort Spa Casino in Reno, Nevada, has completed its $9.7 million geothermal energy project that will replace the natural gas boilers that currently heat the 2.1 million-square-foot facility. The new system now heats 100 percent of the resort’s domestic water and mechanical heat.

Geothermal energy was not a new concept to the property, as it has been heating hot water for the Tuscany Tower, including the 43,000-square-foot Spa Toscana and Fitness Center, as well as the two outdoor swimming pools and spas, since 2007. The Peppermill then drilled a new geothermal well.

“In order for a well to produce the level of geothermal energy that could accomplish what we set out to do, we had to find water at 170 degrees that can pump 1,500 gallons per minute at 150 psi,” says Dean Parker, the resort’s executive facilities director. “With this well, we found that and more.”
