The Public Utility Commission of Texas approved the proposal to build the Orange County Advanced Power Station, which 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.
The project will continue Entergy Texas’ work to provide cleaner, more reliable, and lower-cost energy in Southeast Texas.
Construction is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2023. Entergy Texas expects the plant to be in service by summer 2026.
