According to Raj Suri, CEO of EmberClear, while the facility’s groundbreaking originally slated for the Fall of 2018 has been delayed until the first half of 2019, significant milestones have been achieved that continue to move the project forward.
EmberClear intends to construct a 1050 MW natural gas-fired electric power generation facility on about 100 acres in the Harrison County Industrial Park. EmberClear, which will invest nearly $1 billion in the construction, estimates that the facility will provide enough electricity to power one million homes. The project is expected to bring about 700 construction jobs to the county for three years, and then create over 20 permanent skilled jobs.
The plant is being built near shale formations containing prolific amounts of low-priced natural gas, according to officials. Several pipelines operated by Dominion East, Spectra, Energy Transfer and Columbia are already located within a few miles of the project site. In addition, several fractionation and gas distillation facilities already in Harrison County have plans to expand production.
