The goal is to use geothermal energy in the village to generate electricity and heat, and to develop leisure-time activities such as an aquapark and a salt spa to support tourism in the region, as well to heat greenhouses for agricultural purposes. The total investment in the project will be known only after a feasibility study is completed but first estimates were around €30 million.
