Two Companies Planning Natural Gas-Fired Power Plants in Carroll County
Carroll County now has two companies that want to generate electricity by burning natural gas from the Utica shale.
Advanced Power Services' Carroll County Energy LLC wants to build a $900 million plant north of Carrollton.
The plant could produce 700 megawatts of electricity, enough to power 700,000 houses.
That plan was unveiled in July 2013 by the Boston-based company.
There is a second plan that is not as far along: by New York-based Terra-Gen Power LLC.
It calls for a 600-megawatt plant on 50 acres north of Carrollton.Read more by clicking here.
