“We’re very excited about this project. The $900 Million power plant will have a significant impact on the growing economy of Harrison County for years to come. It will expand the tax base, enlarge payrolls and drive revenues for a host of local businesses.ā€

Jim Palumbo ā€“ Chief Technology Officer, EmberClear


Harrison Power Project is a 1,050 MW natural gas-fired combined cycle facility (NGCC) located near Cadiz in Harrison County, Ohio, approximately 60 miles west of Pittsburgh, PA. We partnered with Chicago Bridge & Iron (ā€œCB&Iā€) to complete development and put together a construction schedule for the Project.

The Project will be constructed in the Harrison County Industrial Park on a 90 acre site already zoned for a power plant. EmberClear has entered into agreements with Harrison County for certain right-of-ways for the natural gas pipeline connections, and electric interconnection. Harrison County will build all water lines to and from the site and the Village will supply the project with all of its water requirements.

In order to minimize water usage and discharge, Harrison Power Project will employ air cooled condensing enhancing our commitment to the environment.

The prolific natural gas production facilities near the Project make this facility uniquely positioned to produce low-cost power. There are several natural gas pipelines operated by Dominion East Ohio, Spectra, Energy Transfer and Columbia within a few miles of the Project site. In addition, there are several gas processing facilities adjacent to The Project for accessing natural gas directly from the processing facility. The Harrison Project is entertaining multiple proposals for the supply of natural gas from marketers/producers in the area.

The Project will connect to the existing electric grid system. The local utility is AEP (in the PJM West zone of the PJM RTO). AEP is investing over $3.5 Billion to upgrade electric infrastructure around Harrison County to satisfy the growing demand.

The Air Permit to construct and all other regulatory approvals are expected to be in place by Q1-2018. The Project will employ the latest advanced turbine technology and benefit from best-in-class fuel efficiency.

The projected financial close is in Q3-2018, with projected commercial operations starting in Q1-2021. The Harrison Project will bring a $900 Million investment to Harrison County and create approximately 600 construction and 30 permanent jobs.
