$800 million power plant planned for Carroll County

CARROLLTON, Ohio (WKBN) — A Swiss company plans to use natural gas from the Utica shale formation to fuel an 899 million dollar power plant that will be built in Carroll County.

Advanced Power AG’s new plant near Carrollton will produce enough electricity to power 750,000 homes.

The plant is scheduled to start up in 2017.

The project will mean 700 construction jobs and 20 to 30 permanent jobs once the plant goes online.
