Another Prolific Producer!

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 18, 2008) - Nevada Geothermal Power Inc. (NGP) (TSX VENTURE:NGP)(OTCBB:NGLPF) is pleased to announce positive results from Well 25-14, completed to a depth of 2370 feet (722 metres), having intersected a strong production zone at 2270 feet (692 metres).

Rig-on flow testing on January 7, 2008, encountered temperatures of 378 degrees F (192 degrees C) and the capacity of this well is expected to be similar to Well 26A-14 and Well 23-14. Longer term testing is planned and results are expected in the next month.

Well 25-14 Rig-on Flow Test January 7, 2008

The ThermaSource rig resumed drilling in early December 2007 and will be kept under contract to completion of production and injection wells. The drill rig is being moved to the fifth well site (44-14) and construction has begun on the drill pad for the sixth Well 42-14.

Blue Mountain, located 30 kilometers (20 miles) west of the town of Winnemucca, Nevada, is ideally situated for development. The proposed Faulkner I geothermal plant will require a 20-mile long transmission line over relatively flat, undeveloped desert land to a connection point located on the Utility's 120kV-transmission line north of Mill City, Nevada. The electric power is to be sold to Nevada Power Company under a 20-year Power Purchase Agreement for up to 35 MW gross of geothermal power. Phase I at Blue Mountain is expected to commence power generation in late 2009.
