The right place at the right time...CPV Valley Energy Center
The lower Hudson Valley is evolving and so are its energy needs.
The CPV Valley Energy Center is a custom-designed solution to meet the growing electricity needs of the region. Located directly adjacent to Interstate 84 on an industrially-approved 122-acre lot, the CPV Valley Energy Center will employ dry-cooling and the most advanced natural gas turbine and environmental control technology. It will be one of the cleanest conventional electric generating projects in the world when it comes on-line in 2016.
Driven by two gas turbines and one steam turbine in a “combined-cycle” configuration utilizing clean natural gas, CPV Valley will generate upwards of 650 megawatts. Annually supplying the total electricity needs for the equivalent of more than half-a-million New York state households.
CPV Valley’s dry-cooling design saves more than 85 percent of the water used by similar wet-cooled facilities. The water the Project does require will come from recycled water it purchases from the City of Middletown.
CPV Valley not only is environmentally responsible, but it also puts
New Yorker’s back to work, injects private capital into the local economy, is a major new revenue stream for local governments and helps fund area schools.
It’s time to build the CPV Valley Energy Center.
