Very long term play on what could be a lucrative and pretty much wide open industry. The margins on geothermally-generated energy seems like they could be stunning. The US government appears serious on backing alternative energy sources and these guys seem well poised to take advantage of that.

That's just it, they're only in it to take advantage of the tax incentives. Look at their capacity, all they are doing is selling it back to the power companies. The only positive thing is the partnership they entered into with a larger company which will most likely be at the shareholder's expense. This industry is politically sensitive and highly concentrated. The nature of their industry is competitive, capital intensive and is undergoing much consolidation, as you can see that they have too many subsidiaries.
