Projects in Development

Guernsey Power Station

Guernsey Power Station

The project will be a 1650 MW state of the art power plant located in the heart of Utica and Marcellous on a site with considerable gas and electric transmission infrastructure on site.


We searched for months in southeastern Ohio and southwest PA before finding this excellent site in Guernsey County, Ohio. 


The people in the community have welcomed us with open arms and have wholeheartedly supported the project for over two years.


We now have all permits and look forward to the financing phase with our partners at Caithness
