AES Plant in Potter Township to Close

A small coal-fired power plant in Potter Township is shutting its doors, two years earlier than anticipated. Virginia-based AES Corporation says the plant will close because the company couldn’t find a buyer for its electricity. Jack Manning – president of the Beaver County Chamber of Commerce – tells Beaver County Radio that the plant closing wasn’t unexpected, although it wasn’t expected this soon. The Beaver County Times reports AES hasn’t said when the 125-megawatt facility will shut down.
