While New York is pursuing a politically correct but economically idiotic energy policy, a new natural gas plant in Virginia shows how to get things done.
Dominion, a huge natural gas and electric utility as well as a midstream company, announced plans in March, 2015 to build the State of Virginia’s (indeed the country’s) largest natural gas powered electric generating plant, in Greensville County. The $1.3 billion state-of-the-art natural gas-fired electric generating station will have capacity to generate 1,600 megawatts of electricity. Dominion’s own 550-mile Atlantic Coast Pipeline (when built) will provide cheap, abundant, clean-burning Marcellus/Utica Shale gas to power it.
