It is expected to enter service by summer 2011.
|Northumberland Cogeneration Facility (Northumberland, PA)
The Northumberland Cogeneration Facility is an 18MW, biomass/clean waste wood burning power plant. Through normal operations, the facility not only creates enough electricity to run 13,000 homes, but also reduces area landfill consumption.
|Shepaug Hydro Facility (Southbury, CT)
The Shepaug plant is a 42.6MW conventional hydroelectricity facility located in Southbury, Conn. Shepaug not only powers over 20,000 customers, but it is also a focal point for river operations and is essential in preventing flood damage to New Milford. Because of its hydroelectric process, water levels from a nearby gorge area are managed simply through the plant’s normal operations.
