Even though it’s been more than a year since a local energy company announced it’d be building another plant in Northern Grimes, ground has yet to be broken on a new facility designed to kick on when energy demands are high.
Tenaska’s Geoff Gonka tells Navasota News the company’s got almost all the permits needed to build its proposed peaking plant. So all they’re waiting for now is a good pool of clients.
Gonka reports, the plant would undergo 2-years of construction and while those jobs would be temporary, he reports the plant will eventually require around 10 full-time workers once it’s in operation.
He says Tenaska is convinced there will be a need for the plant in the near future. And as for the landowners around the proposed plant, Gonka pledges Tenaska intends to be a good neighbor.
Gonka says the best way to find out more about the project’s status, or to let Tenaska know your thoughts, is online at www.Tenaska.com
