A Florida-based energy company has proposed building a natural gas-fired power plant in Middletown that would represent an investment of more than $500 million and bring more than 400 jobs to Butler County.
NTE Energy plans to develop, own and operate what it’s calling “one of the most efficient natural gas-fired power plants in the United States.” The facility, to be called the Middletown Energy Center and located on Cincinnati Dayton Road, near Oxford State Road, will generate enough power to supply approximately 400,000 homes, the company said.
Tim Eves, executive vice president of development, said the company is still exploring who will be its customer base.
Middletown Mayor Lawrence Mulligan, Jr., compared the project and its financial impact to the region to Suncoke, a cokemaking and heat generating plant that opened in 2011 in Middletown.The whole article can be viewed here.
