Evansville based energy provider Vectren wants to build a 100 megawatt "peaking plant" on land the company already owns in Gibson County. The exact location of the planned $80 million facility would be a natural gas fired plant, and would only operate during peak demand times, like hot summer days when Vectren customers use their air conditioners. The plant would sit somewhere on a 55 acre plot of land about half way between Ft. Branch and Francisco. The company is in the process of requesting permits from the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission, and hopes to have the power plant on line by 2010. Vectren spokesman Mike Roeder says while the number of customers the utility serves isnt necessarily increasing, the demand for electricity is. He urged customers to continue to look for ways to conserve power. Natural gas fired power plants are among cleanest ways to use fossil fuels to generate electricity. Local environmental group Valley Watch is praising the utility for selecting a natural gas plant to increase its power generating capacity.
