    Harnessing the Earth's Power to Light Cities

    It's not often that a community can live untroubled with a giant power plant in its midst, belching white, smoke-like clouds into the atmosphere. But in Manado, the capital city of Indonesia's North Sulawesi province, residents are not worried about the plant's plume. The clouds are nothing more than environmentally friendly steam, generated by the ADB-supported Lahendong Geothermal Plant, which harnesses the earth's power to provide clean, sustainable energy for Manado's residents.
