IPP plans conversion to natural gas

The current plan being pursued by IPA is to turn IPP into a natural gas power plant by 2025. The plan would be to begin construction on the natural gas facility in 2020, erecting the new facility on property originally designed for two additional coal-burning units at the outset of the project. Officials said exactly what IPA would do with the two current 750-megawatt units is still up in the air. They won’t be physically converting them to produce power with natural gas, leaving them open to being purchased by a third party, or possibly eventually being torn down. All of the project participants have to agree to modify the project. Richfield Reaper
