(KSL News) Bidding for an energy resource in Central Utah pulled in some money for the federal government.

As we reported last week, the Bureau of Land Management is hoping to spur more geothermal plants, like one in Beaver County. It generates electricity, using natural heat from deep underground.

In bidding today, the government pulled in well over $3 million from companies that hope to start geothermal operations on about 6,000 acres of federal land.
