Exelon Corporation is moving forward with a scaled-back plan to expand operations at its existing 65-acre Summer Street facility that would add 195 megawatts of efficient energy.
Two new state-of-the-art generating units will run mainly on natural gas, but will have the ability to run on ultra-low sulfur distillate fuel as a backup, Exelon said in a press release.
Both generating units will be equipped with the latest emissions control technology and will meet all applicable federal and state environmental regulations, Exelon said.
“The state-of-the-art units will enhance the reliability of the New England region’s electric system, and provide a fast-starting back-up for intermittent renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind,” the company said in the release.
