Electrical power from the Miravalles geothermal plant is distributed from the control room of Project CORTEZ. The Miravalles I and II wells produce 60 and 55 MW of power, respectively, through reinjection. The vapor-phase Miravalles III well is expected to produce 27.5 MW. The depths of the geothermal wells vary from 959 to 3022 m.
