Expected to begin construction in Fall 2017, Cricket Valley Energy’s new facility will use a highly efficient, environmentally-responsible process to convert clean-burning American natural gas into electricity. The plant will provide power for nearly one million homes, and bring significant economic benefits for the community.
The facility is an approximately 1,100 megawatt (MW), natural gas-fired power plant proposed for an industrially-zoned site. The 193-acre property has existing energy infrastructure, including electric power lines and a natural gas pipeline, as well as a substantial tree buffer that will minimize visual and sound impacts. The location provides an important opportunity for economic revitalization, creating jobs and tax revenue for the Town of Dover. These factors combine to make it a smart site for Cricket Valley Energy’s clean-burning natural gas power plant. Cricket Valley Energy is an affiliate of Advanced Power Services (NA), a leading energy development company based in Boston, Massachusetts.
