Gov. Jack Markell is scheduled to speak at the groundbreaking ceremony for Garrison Energy Center in Dover at 10:30 this morning.
Gov. Markell will join DEDO Director Alan Levin, Calpine Senior Vice President of Government and Regulatory Affairs Joseph Ronan Jr., Calpine CEO Jack Fusco and others to break ground for a 309-megawatt combined-cycle electric generating facility. The natural gas power-generating facility will provide clean energy to power about 250,000 homes.
The first phase of the project is slated to begin commercial operations by June 2015 or sooner. The project will create 250 construction jobs and 16 permanent operating jobs.
