Tenaska Lebanon Valley

Lebanon County, Pennsylvania

The Tenaska Central Alabama Generating Station near Billingsley, Alabama, is an 885-megawatt combined-cycle facility similar to that proposed for Lebanon County, Pennsylvania. The Alabama facility contributes approximately $5.6 million annually in salaries and payments to local contractors and vendors.

Tenaska, a respected energy company, is evaluating a site in northern Lebanon County, Pennsylvania, to develop, construct and operate a state-of-the-art electric generating facility. Fueled by clean-burning natural gas, the plant would bring hundreds of construction jobs, many well-paying, full-time operations jobs and power to meet the growing demand for electricity in the region.

Tenaska has a nearly 30-year history of developing, building, owning and operating environmentally responsible electric generating facilities. Its reputation is sound. Three of Tenaska’s plants have received “Project of the Year” honors from industry sources. The Natural Resources Defense Council, a national environmental advocacy group, has listed Tenaska in benchmarking studies since 2004 as having among the lowest fleet-wide average emission rates for fossil-fueled power plants in the United States.

Economic Impact

If built in Lebanon County, Pennsylvania, the facility would:

  • Result in more property tax revenue to local government and schools;
  • Boost the local economy, with a total estimated direct construction cost of more than $500 million; and
  • Provide approximately 600 jobs during peak construction and approximately 25 well-paying, full-time jobs during operation.
