Meeting Coming on Gas-Fired Power Plant in Carroll County
From the Akron Beacon Journal:
The Ohio Power Siting Board is holding a public hearing on Thursday on a 700-megawatt electric generation plant in Carroll County.
The hearing on the $800 million plant that will burn natural gas to produce electricity will begin at 6 p.m. at the Carrollton High School fine arts room, 252 Third St. NE, Carrollton.
The proposed plant would be built by Carroll County Energy LLC, a private company.
The company, a subsidiary of Boston-based Advanced Power Services, has an agreement with General Electric to develop the Ohio plant using GE’s gas turbine technologies. The plant will capture waste heat to generate additional electricity.
