3 new Pa. gas-fired power plants planned


A suburban Philadelph­ia company has announced plans to build three new natural gas-fired electrical generation plants in northern Pennsylvan­ia.

The (Williamspo­rt) SunGazette reports that constructi­on on the plant in Bradford County and two plants in Tioga County could begin as early as next year.

Officials said at a Northern Tier Regional Planning and Developmen­t Commission meeting Friday that each plant will cost about $20 million.

IMG Midstream, headquarte­red in Yardley, said nine sites are currently under developmen­t, including sites in Susquehann­a and Wyoming County.

Company business developmen­t manager Matt Tripoli said most companies make power in large centralize­d plants and transport it long distances to be turned into electricit­y.

He said IMG plans to produce electricit­y locally and getting it into the local transmissi­on system.
