    For What It's Earth: Digging Deeper on Geothermal Energy

    For What It's Earth: Digging Deeper on Geothermal Energy

    In this episode, we sit down with Daniel Parker of NCSEA to talk about an energy that flies under the radar-- literally. Geothermal energy comprises nearly half of all clean energy systems in North Carolina, yet represents a small percentage of the overall clean energy economy. What explains this? We uncover this and more as we dig deeper on this important source of clean energy.

EnergyGal is a fan

The Squeaky Clean Energy Podcast does a great job at taking complicated energy topics and breaking them down. A great balance of getting in the weeds and, at the same time, keeping the information accessible and understandable. This podcast will be a regular part of my podcast listening. Can't wait to see what topics are covered in the future.

Great content, but annoyingly overproduced

That’s pretty much it!
