Listen SCC APPROVES ELECTRIC GENERATING FACILITY IN LOUDOUN COUNTY

RICHMOND — The State Corporation Commission (SCC) has approved a request by Green Energy Partners/Stonewall LLC to build a 750 megawatt natural gas-fired generating facility in Loudoun County.

In its final order, the SCC found that 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.

Stonewall proposes to build the power plant on a 101-acre site located south-southeast of the Leesburg Executive Airport and north of the Dulles Greenway at 20077 Gant Lane. The site is approximately four miles southeast of Leesburg.

The facility will include two combustion turbines, two heat recovery steam generators with duct burners, and one steam turbine generator. According to the company, the facility will be a zero liquid discharge facility using reclaimed water from the Leesburg waste water treatment facility.

Stonewall expects the facility to begin commercial operation in March 2017 and estimates the capital cost of the facility to be approximately $500 million.
