    "Advantages of Geothermal Energy 1) It is a renewable source of energy. 2) By far, it is non-polluting and environment friendly. 3) There is no wastage or generation of by-products. 4) Geothermal energy can be used directly. In ancient times, people used this source of energy for heating homes, cooking, etc. 5) Maintenance cost of geothermal power plants is very less. 6) Geothermal power plants don't occupy too much space and thus help in protecting natural environment. 7) Unlike solar energy, it is not dependent on the weather conditions. Disadvantages of Geothermal Energy 1) Only few sites have the potential of Geothermal Energy. 2) Most of the sites, where geothermal energy is produced, are far from markets or cities, where it needs to be consumed. 3) Total generation potential of this source is too small. 4) There is always a danger of eruption of volcano. 5) Installation cost of steam power plant is very high. 6) There is no guarantee that the amount of energy which is produced will justify the capital expenditure and operations costs. 7) It may release some harmful, poisonous gases that can escape through the hole"
