Timing:  We bought toward the high end of the six month range.
Reason:  Ormat has long-term contracts to supply electricity giving it safe, stable cash flows. Geothermal energy has advantages over many other renewable energy sources, as facilities supply power constantly. Geothermal power is a relatively untapped source of renewable energy and Ormat is well-positioned to take advantage of expansion either as a power producer or an equipment supplier. Some large utilities have been buying thermal producers, and Ormat may be an attractive target.

Total Spent:   $2,836.95
