Posted October 21, 2022 in News

The Orange County Advanced Power Station, is a 1,215-megawatt, dual fuel combined cycle power facility. The plant will be located near Bridge City, Texas and will be capable of powering more than 230,000 homes and use a combination of natural gas and hydrogen. Hydrogen produces zero carbon emissions as a fuel source for electric generation.

Entergy Texas intends to file a request for approval to construct the Orange County Advanced Power Station with the Public Utility Commission of Texas. If the Public Utility Commission approves Entergy Texas’s application, construction will begin in the second quarter of 2023. Entergy Texas expects the plant to be in service by summer 2026.

The addition of this facility will provide more than $1.5 billion in net benefits to customers by reducing reliance on energy markets.
