Carroll County To Be Site of $800 Million Natural Gas-Fired Power Plant?

From The Independent:
A Boston-based company announced plans Tuesday to build a natural gas-fired power plant near the village that will generate enough electricity to power 700,000 homes. 
The 700-megawatt Carroll County Energy project is planned for a 77-acre site some 2.5 miles north of the village on state Route 9, said Jonathan W. Winslow, director of development for Advanced Power North America. 
The $800 million plant would employ up to 500 workers during construction, and about 30 full-time workers once completed, he said. 
The power plant still needs approval by the Ohio Power Siting Board, which can take up to a year, and would take up to three years to build, Winslow said.
