A portion of the project’s output is sold long-term to WPPI Energy, a regional power company serving 51 locally-owned, not-for-profit electric utilities. The remaining power is sold into the PJM wholesale market.
Jim Shield, Chief Development Officer for Chicago-based Invenergy, stated:
“Invenergy is pleased to reach this milestone with Nelson, our first operating natural gasfired power generation facility in our home state of Illinois. We’re proud to continue to invest in Illinois’ clean energy economy, with our statewide operating portfolio – which includes wind, solar, and energy storage projects as well - now totaling more than 1,200 MW.“
