Natural Gas Powered Generating Station

DEP to Hold Public Hearing on CPV Fairview Air Quality Plan Approval for a Natural Gas Powered Generating Station

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will hold a public hearing on an Air Quality Plan Approval Application for the proposed CPV Fairview Energy Center in Jackson Township, Cambria County. The hearing will take place on Tuesday, June 21, 2016 at the Jackson Township Fire Hall, 176 Adams Avenue, Mineral Point, PA 15942. The hearing will be preceded by an open question-and-answer session beginning at 6:00 P.M. The public hearing will start at 7:00 P.M.

CPV Fairview, LLC is proposing to construct a combined cycle natural gas fired power station with an approximate generating capacity of 1,040 megawatts. Emissions from the main power block (combustion turbines and heat recovery generators) will be minimized through the installation of selective catalytic reduction and oxidation catalyst emission controls.

CPV Fairview’s proposed plan approval application, and other relevant information can be found online here. The documents are also available for review by any interested party at the DEP’s Southwest Regional Office, 400 Waterfront Drive, Pittsburgh, PA 15222. To request a review, please contact Phil Bouse at 412-442-4000.

At the start of the question-and-answer session, representatives from CPV Fairview and DEP will make brief presentations. Members of the public will then have an opportunity to present testimony at the hearing on the consideration to issue the Plan Approval. Comments and testimony will be limited specifically to the application and conditions of Plan Approval. Those wishing to make comments should register with Community Relations Coordinator John Poister either by email or by phone ([email protected] or 412-442-4203) by noon on June 21, 2016. Commenters may also register at the door on the evening of the hearing.

Those unable to attend the hearing may submit written comments to Devin Tomko, Department of Environmental Protection, 400 Waterfront Drive, Pittsburgh, PA 15222. Persons unable to attend the conference and hearing may submit three copies of a written statement and exhibits within 10 days thereafter to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, Air Quality Program, 400 Waterfront Drive, Pittsburgh, PA, 15222. Each written statement must contain the name, address, and telephone number of the person submitting the statement and identification of the proposed plan approval (11-00536).

Re: Natural Gas Powered Generating Station

Two gas-fired generation plants are nearly ready to go online in the North Central. The former PPL coal-fired plant at Shamokin Dam (near Sunbury), is being replaced by a new gas-fired one and construction is well along on that.

Talen Energy (successor to PPL generation) is also working on a gas-fired system at Brunner's Island in York Haven, although the older coal generation system is still being used there.

Bad news for PA coal, good news for PA natural gas.
