The Guernsey Power Station (GPS) is a 1,875 megawatt, natural gas fired energy generation facility that will produce electricity equivalent to the power needs of approximately one million homes.
GPS will be located in southern Guernsey County in Southeastern Ohio, in the heart of the state’s Utica and Marcellus shale gas development area.
Using state-of-the-art combined cycle technology and a dry (air) cooling system, GPS will be a cost-efficient, fuel-efficient plant that protects air quality and conserves water. It will also boost the local economy through job creation and tax revenue for the local community and schools.
GPS has been jointly developed by Caithness Energy, L.L.C. and Apex Power Group, LLC.
