Company plans to build natural gas power plant in southwestern Pennsylvania

Hatfield's Ferry, a shuttered coal-burning power plant in Greene County, Pennsylvania, has drawn the attention of a New Jersey developer that plans to build a natural gas-fueled power plant on the site, reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The newspaper says APV Renaissance Partners, a subsidiary of American Power Ventures, plans to submit a permit to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection within the next month for a combined-cycle power plant at Hatfield’s Ferry near Masontown. The site is owned by Ohio-based FirstEnergy Corp, which closed the Masontown plant in 2013 because it was losing money, according to the Post-Gazette. For more, read the full story.
