Shale gas drives power plant building boom in Ohio

A boom in construction of natural gas-fired power plants has hit Ohio, the first since the Utica shale play “changed just about everything in the state's energy landscape,” reports the Columbus Dispatch. The newspaper says six such plants are under construction or in the planning stages in Ohio, showing how shale gas is “transforming the electricity market in a state long associated with coal and coal-fired electricity.”
