NTE Energy announced they’re developing what the company’s calling South Carolina’s most efficient power plant in Anderson County.
When operational in 2024, the gas-fired Anderson County Energy Center will have a capacity of 1,000 MW. NTE anticipates it will spend more than $1 billion to finish it and promises to include “some of the most efficient and environmentally-friendly technologies currently available.”
“The addition of the Anderson County facility brings NTE’s generation portfolio to more than 2,000 MW representing some the newest, cleanest and most efficient power plants in the country. This substantial investment in the State of South Carolina will provide long term benefits to all of our customers through stable, lower power rates and enhanced economic development,” said Mike Green, SVP of Carolinas Development for NTE Energy.
NTE is already constructing other gas plants in nearby North Carolina, including the 475-MW Kings Mountain Energy Center and the 500-MW Reidsville Energy Center, which will become fully operational by 2021.
