Lebanon County, Pennsylvania
Tenaska, a respected energy company, is developing a site in north Lebanon County, Pennsylvania, on which to 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 permanent well-paying jobs, and power to meet the growing demand for electricity in the region.
Tenaska builds, owns and operates environmentally responsible electric generating facilities. Its reputation is sound. Three of Tenaska’s plants have received “Project of the Year” honors from industry sources. In 2012 benchmarking studies, the Natural Resources Defense Council, a national environmental advocacy group, ranked Tenaska as one of the top performing U.S. energy companies for controlling air emissions.
If built in Lebanon County, Pennsylvania, the facility would:
|•||Result in more property tax revenue to local units of government;|
|•||Boost the local economy, with a total estimated construction cost of more than $500 million; and|
|•||Provide more than 300 jobs, on average, during construction and up to 30 permanent, well-paying jobs during operation.|
The Tenaska Central Alabama Generating Station near Billingsley, Ala., is an 885-megawatt combined-cycle facility nearly as large as that proposed for Lebanon County, Pa. Generating units would be enclosed in a building at the Lebanon County facility. The Alabama facility contributes more than $4 million annually in salaries and payments to local contractors and vendors.
