The Guernsey Power Station is a 1,875 megawatt, natural gas fired energy generation facility that produces electricity roughly equivalent to serve the power needs of approximately 1.4 million homes.
Guernsey Power Station is 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, Guernsey Power Station is a cost-efficient, fuel-efficient plant that protects air quality and conserves water. It also boosts the local economy through job creation and tax revenue for the local community and schools.
Guernsey Power Station was developed by a subsidiary of Caithness Energy, L.L.C. and Apex Power Group, LLC. Construction and operation of the facility is managed by subsidiaries of Caithness.
