Moxie Energy to build natural gas power plant near nuclear facility

Virginia-based Moxie Energy is planning to build a 900 MW natural gas power plant on Route 11, near the Susquehanna nuclear facility in Pennsylvania, according to spokeswoman for the Department of Environmental Protection.

The project, called the Moxie Freedom Project, is designed to use locally produced natural gas from the Marcellus Shale to produce electricity to sell back to the grid, the Post Gazette reported.

The project is still awaiting air quality plan approval from Pennsylvania’s DEP, according to Power Engineering.

The project will not use water from the Susquehanna River because cooling towers will not be used in the energy process. She explained that the two natural gas-fired combustion turbines would generate the electricity; exhaust will be used to heat water, creating steam that will power two other electricity generating turbines.
