New natural gas plant in Morgan City


The Louisiana Energy and Power Authority held its ground breaking Thursday for its $120 million new natural gas fired electrical power plant to be built in Morgan City.

The new plant is the first power plant to be built in the southern region of Louisiana in some 40 years.

The combined cycle gas turbine generating plant is superior to conventional fossil fueled generating plants because of its higher efficiency, lower environmental impact, lower capital cost and shorter construction time.

Because the plant is fuel efficient it will help stabilize the cost of electrical power by minimizing the impact of fluctuations in natural gas rates.
