Sounds like another company trying to make a buck at everyone elses (and the environments) expense.
I agree. Geothermal energy through a closed system is a great option and a very clean and renewable source. But pumping water into the ground in order to create caverns as a natural reservoir is going to eventually go bad and when this is done on top of a volcano...who knows what the result might be.
