IGCC power plant in Texas signs PPA

Summit Power Group’s 400 MW Texas Clean Energy Project (TCEP) signed a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with CPS Energy for 200 MW of electricity generated from the proposed integrated gasification combined cycle station. The plant is expected to be in operations by 2014 or 2015.
