Nearly 200 people attended a special groundbreaking ceremony to commemorate the start of construction on the Orange County Advanced Power Station, a project underway next to Entergy Texas’ Sabine Power Plant in Orange. At full capacity, the combined-cycle power plant will be capable of producing 1,215 megawatts of electricity per year, which is enough to power 230,000 homes.

“This groundbreaking marks the start of an exciting opportunity to serve the growing demand across Southeast Texas,” said Eliecer Viamontes, president and CEO of Entergy Texas. “By investing in modern and fuel-efficient technology, we can meet the needs of our customers today while laying the foundation for future growth across our region.”

“Facilities like the Orange County Advanced Power Station will ensure that reliable power is available in Southeast Texas for generations to come,” said Governor Abbott. “I want to thank the Orange County City Council and community leaders for all your hard work bringing such a great company to this wonderful city. And thank you to Entergy for continuing to invest in Texas and the great people of Orange. The new facility will be a Texas-sized investment in the future of Southeast Texas.”
