Footprint Power to acquire Salem power plant

Footprint Power LLC announced that it has signed an agreement with Dominion Energy Inc. to acquire the coal-and-oil-fired Salem Harbor Power Station. Footprint plans to remediate the site and develop a new state-of-the-art, natural gas power plant on approximately one third of the 63-acre Salem Harbor site.

The plant will usher in a new era of power generation in New England by reducing emissions throughout the ISO New England system. The capabilities of this plant to quickly start and stop will enable more intermittent renewable generation to be built in the future.
