NTE Energy Plans 1000 MW Gas-Fired Electric Plant in SC

NTE Energy, headquartered in Saint Augustine, FL, buys and builds electric generating plants and transmission facilities throughout North America. We’ve reported on a number of NTE projects, including a report from April 2016 when NTE announced three new gas-fired electric plants that will be fed by Marcellus/Utica gas (see NTE Energy Developing 3 NatGas-Fired Electric Plants in CT/NC/OH). You can add one more Marcellus-fired plant to the list. NTE announced earlier this week it will build a mammoth 1,000 megawatt (1 gigawatt) gas-fired plant in Anderson County, South Carolina. The $1 billion project will generate enough electricity to power 1 million SC homes and businesses. The announcement about the project does not specifically mention M-U gas feeding it, but since the mighty Transco Pipeline passes through Anderson and has been reversed to bring M-U gas from north to south, there’s no doubt about the gas that will feed the new plant. You may recall last month we reported on Duke Energy starting operations at a new 750-megawatt gas-fired plant in Anderson County (see Duke Energy SC Gas-Fired Plant Starts Up – Marcellus Connection?). An obvious observation: Big gas pipelines are a magnet for new electric generating plant projects…
