MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (AP) — A Florida based energy company says it plans to spend more than $500 million on a natural gas-fired power plant in southwest Ohio that could mean jobs for 400 people in the area.
NTE Energy said Tuesday that it plans to operate "one of the most efficient natural gas-fired power plants in the United States" in Middletown, between Dayton and Cincinnati, according to the Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1ewJcES ).
Officials say permit applications have begun. The project is expected to begin construction in 2015 and go online 2018.
The company said the bulk of the 300 to 400 construction jobs are expected to be filled by the members of skilled trades unions. When it's finished, the plant is expected to add around 25 to 30 full-time jobs to the Middletown area.
