New Gas-Fired Power Plants in Appalachian Basin Also Fire Economy

There are 29 new gas-fired power plants coming to the Appalachian Basin bringing affordable American energy, jobs and economic benefits.

Each large (over 475 megawatts) gas-fired electric power plant is an economic bonanza. The plants cost hundreds of millions of dollars to build–over a billion dollars for the largest plants. They provide hundreds of jobs during construction, jobs that last several years. They provide millions in tax revenue to local municipalities and schools.
