Pa. DEP issues permit for gas-fired power plant



Published: Wed, October 10, 2012 @ 3:45 p.m.

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection has issued a permit for a new electric power plant that will be supplied at least partly with locally produced natural gas from the Marcellus Shale.

The agency says in a release today that Moxie Liberty LLC of Vienna, Va., plans to build the plant in Bradford County, about 60 miles west of Scranton.

The proposed plant could be completed in two or three years and will generate 468 megawatts of electricity.

A boom in natural gas production in Pennsylvania has led many utilities to consider shifting away from using coal as the primary fuel.
