Hell’s Kitchen Power Co.
Hell’s Kitchen Power Co. is a world-scale geothermal energy development progressing in conjunction with Hell’s Kitchen Lithium Co. and is located on the south-east shore of the Salton Sea in Imperial Valley, California.
Hell’s Kitchen Power is an extension of a proven geothermal field.
The Salton Sea Known Geothermal Resource Area (SSKGRA) has been well documented since 1982 with successful geothermal plants operating in this highly active area for over 30 years.
Proven production with no sign of production decline in over 30 years of operations
Hell’s Kitchen Power is located in close proximity to Berkshire Hathaway Energy and Hudson Ranch power plants.
The entire Salton Sea Geothermal Field has an estimated power capacity of 2,950 megawatts per annum.
CTR’s engineering and technical consultant, Geothermal Resource Group completed a leasehold evaluation over CTR’s leases and determined an estimated a 1,083 megawatts per annum of electricity generation capacity.
Hell’s Kitchen Power is expected to produce its first 49.9 megawatts per annum of renewable power in 2023, with additional power output planned according to demand.

Closed loop, real-time facility
Base-load, thermal power provides reliability to stabilize electric grids 24/7
Not subject to sun, wind or adverse weather conditions
Project is in line with California’s SB100 climate goals
Attractive to investors and companies with high-level sustainability mandates
Politically stable U.S. location for secure access and supply
Ready access to power grid infrastructure
All required permits, agreements, and certifications are confirmed for delineation drilling
Socially responsible development with employment benefits for the region
Supported by federal, state and local government agencies
California has committed to 50% clean energy by 2030 and 100% clean energy by 2045
California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) has adopted a Preferred Systems Portfolio which aims to produce 12,000 megawatts of renewable energy by 2030
1,700 megawatts is expected to be generated from new geothermal development
30,000 megawatts of renewable energy is required to replace natural gas by 2040
Salton Sea Known Geothermal Resource Area (SSKGRA), Imperial Valley, California.
CTR has secured all land and subsurface mineral rights within the Imperial Irrigation District leasehold area totalling 7,380 acres.
The project’s output lifespan is estimated at approximately 30 years.
The resource evaluation completed by Geothermal Resource Group indicates a robust and long-term resource with total power potential of 1,083MWe per annum at full capacity (inclusive of all subordinate rights).
The project will be built out in stages of 49.9 megawatts modular units. The first unit is expected to be operational in 2023.
Hell’s Kitchen Power Co. intends to develop modular, 49.9MW power generation units in future stages as demand increases.
