The '''Geothermal Generator'' uses the heat of Lava to generate EU. With the release of IC², Geothermal Generators accept both [[Non-IC Items|Lava Buckets]] and [[Lava Cell|Lava Cells]]. The latter are stackable and thus require less maintenance, but cost Tin to produce.
+
The '''Geothermal Generator''' produces [[EU]] by consuming lava, which may be supplied by buckets, {{Gin|Universal Fluid Cell}}s (or consumable {{Gin|Lava Cell}}s in older versions), or directly from an adjacent block such as a {{Gin|Pump}} or {{Gin|Fluid Distributor}}.  Every 1 mB of lava consumed produces 10 EU, so that every bucket or cell provides a total of 10,000 EU at a rate of 20 EU/t. However, the Geothermal Generator can discharge up to 32 EU/t if it has stored EU.
  
''Piping note:'' A Geothermal Generator can be supplied lava from ANY form of liquid piping, with the changes to the Forge Liquid Dictionary. That's right, not only Buildcraft Golden Waterproof piping, but also Redpower Hematic Tubes and Thermal Expansion Liquiducts!
+
Like any other machine, remove with a {{Gin|Wrench}} to avoid breaking it down into a {{Gin|Basic Machine Casing}}.  Removing the Geothermal Generator will also cause it to lose all stored EU and lava; any items still inside will be dropped and may be retrieved.
 
 
A Geothermal Generator may be broken with a Stone Pickaxe or better to yield a [[Generator]], but a [[Wrench]] is required to properly dismantle it to yield a Geothermal Generator. Either way you remove it, it will still lose all its internal storage of EU and lava (except lava cells/lava buckets).

As with all Generators, the lava-based fuel of choice is inserted into the lower slot, and optionally an [[RE Battery]] in the upper slot. The Geothermal Generator will charge the battery or output power at a rate of 20 [[EU|EU/t]].
 
 
 
A single Geothermal Generator can store 24 units of lava internally and another stack of 64 lava  cells will wait in the inventory slot until needed or removed by player - thus, inserting a full stack of Lava Cells will instantly use up 24 of them and fill out the lava gauge.  Unlike the [[Furnace|furnace]], the Geothermal Generator does not consume the bucket when a lava bucket is used as fuel. It is returned to your inventory.

== Interactions with other mods ==
 
* With the PowerConverters Mod, steam engines can burn lava buckets and transfer the power through an engine generator. The engine generators are expensive, and buckets of lava are complicated to deal with, but it would produce 50,000 EU per lava bucket as opposed to 20,000 EU.
 
* If you have the BuildCraft mod installed, you can generate near infinite amounts of power. Simply connect one (or more) of these magical machines to a [http://minecraftbuildcraft.wikia.com/wiki/Pump BuildCraft Pump] pumping from a lava lake in [http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/The_Nether the Nether].
 
* If you have RedPower installed, you can also use the slightly more expensive but more powerful and less laggier RedPower Pump!

The Geothermal Generator produces EU by consuming lava, which may be supplied by buckets, Grid Universal Fluid Cell.png Universal Fluid Cells (or consumable Grid Lava Cell.png Lava Cells in older versions), or directly from an adjacent block such as a Grid Pump.png Pump or Grid Fluid Distributor.png Fluid Distributor. Every 1 mB of lava consumed produces 10 EU, so that every bucket or cell provides a total of 10,000 EU at a rate of 20 EU/t. However, the Geothermal Generator can discharge up to 32 EU/t if it has stored EU.

Like any other machine, remove with a Grid Wrench.png Wrench to avoid breaking it down into a Grid Basic Machine Casing.png Basic Machine Casing. Removing the Geothermal Generator will also cause it to lose all stored EU and lava; any items still inside will be dropped and may be retrieved.

HAYO

Ge-o-ther-mal, doesn't that sound really good? Yeah, it does. And why? Because it's freakin awesome!

A Geothermal Generator works on the same basic principle as normal Generators do. But instead of wastefully burning stuff, these machines use the heat of pure Magma to provide a clean, yet powerful energy source. Just put a bucket of freshly gathered lava in, and watch your RE Batteries charge up! HAYO!


Attention: We take no responsibility for any physical damage customers may take in the process of filling Geothermal Generators with lava. That was specified in the waiver of liability you signed during your purchase.

You may not sue us for payment of ANY fire damage done to your housing, due to said stipulation in said waiver of liability.

History

Version Changes
Industrial Craft²
0.90 Geothermal Generators are re-released.
1.337 The output of a Geothermal Generator was buffed from 10 EU/t (in 10 EU-p) to 20 EU/t (in 20 EU-p).
Industrial Craft² (Upcoming)
Build #189 Geothermal Generators will output 32 EU-packets by default; however, their default EU output is still 20 EU/t.
Some version Yield per bucket reduced from 20,000 EU to 10,000 EU.
