Valley Fire Community Fund

The Geothermal Resources Council (GRC) is asking for your help in giving relief to those affected by a recent natural disaster in Northern California. In September, the Valley Fire killed four, leveled more than 1,900 structures and left 3,000 homeless in communities in and around The Geysers geothermal field.

We ask our colleagues in the geothermal energy community to help in relief efforts. The Mendo-Lake Credit Union has set up a fund to aid those impacted by the fire. All donations are tax deductible. Donate here.......


Contact the GRC

The GRC staff now has just the one email address each. We will no longer be using email addresses with the @sbcglobal.net domain. Please check your email client and make the appropriate changes. Note also the phone numbers with extensions if applicable.
