Generating plant gets nod from siting board

The Ohio Power Siting Board has authorized Oregon Clean Energy, LLC, to build a natural gas-fired electric generating facility on N. Lallendorf Road in the City of Oregon.

Todd Snitchler, board chairman, said the facility will add “much needed” generating capacity to northern Ohio.

“The facility will take advantage of cleaner burning natural gas, at today’s affordable prices, further enhancing Ohio’s diversified energy portfolio,” he said last week.

Oregon Clean Energy is a subsidiary of North America Project Development. A hearing on the plant’s air permit is scheduled for May 8.

The firm’s application said that an estimated 532 construction-related jobs would be created during the building of the $860 million project.

During operation it will employ 25 full-time workers.

The board held two hearings – one each in Columbus and Oregon. The project received support from local officials representing the city, businesses, and labor.
