Blackrock Geoscience

Specializing in geothermal project development and implementation

“[The business model canvas] was an extremely useful tool and it will help me greatly to improve the way I present this business and move forward in growing.” – Lisa Kuscu, owner

Blackrock Geoscience performs all aspects of geothermal energy development starting with planning a geothermal assessment program all the way to building a power plant. The company has been engaged in both domestic and international geothermal energy projects. Owner Lisa Kuscu works with consultants from diverse backgrounds providing access to an enormous network of knowledge and invaluable contacts.

Kuscu received assistance from the SBDC with Quickbooks, understanding her business model by using the business model canvas, and also through a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program. With a DBE grant, Kuscu was able to attend a conference which helped lay the ground work for future project opportunities. She was recently awarded a grant to conduct a geothermal feasibility study in Panama.
