Va. regulators OK Loudoun County power plant
The State Corporation Commission said Wednesday it approved the request by Green Energy Partners/Stonewall LLC.
Regulators said they found the project is in the public interest and is likely to produce significant economic benefits in terms of jobs, taxes, and revenues in Loudoun County.
The company proposes to build the power plant on a 101-acre site near the Leesburg Executive Airport and the Dulles Greenway. It is expected to be in commercial operation in March 2017 at a cost of $500 million.
According to the company, the facility will use reclaimed water from the Leesburg waste water treatment facility.
