New Natural Gas Power Plant Coming to West Texas 01/27/14
CBS 7 News
A massive natural gas power plant may be coming to Ector County.
Power generation company Invenergy is looking to build a 120-million dollar power plant in the county.
The plant, also called the Ector County Energy Center,” would act as a back up to wind energy in the event that there is not enough wind to power wind turbines. Representatives from the company presented their plans to the Ector county Commissioners today in hopes of getting a 10-year property tax abatement for the project.
A public hearing will be held on February 10th. A decision on the abatement will be made shortly after.
