Earlier this month, the Ohio Power Siting Board approved the construction of two natural gas-fired, combined-cycle projects totaling 1,950 MW in Guernsey and Trumbull counties, according to Utility Dive.
In a joint project, Apex Power Group and Caithness Energy are developing a 1,100 MW Guernsey Power Station in Valley Township. Meanwhile, the privately-owned Clean Energy Future-Trumbull is developing 940 MW Trumbull Energy Center in Lordstown.
The Guernsey plant is scheduled to begin construction in December and be operational by October 31, 2020. The Trumbull Energy Center is on track to begin construction in November 2017 and come online by June 2020.
