The New York State Board on Electric Generation Siting and the Environment will meet on Jan. 12, 2017, to consider an application from PSEG Power New York LLC for approval of upgrades at its gas-fired Bethlehem Energy Center.
PSEG Power New York is seeking to perform General Electric Advanced Gas Path (AGP) upgrades at the three GE 7FA gas turbines at the Bethlehem Energy Center (BEC) over the coming years. If approved, the units would be upgraded sequentially per year, starting in 2017.
This is a 750-MW natural gas-fired combined cycle facility located in the Town of Bethlehem, Albany County. PSEG Power New York had redeveloped the 400-MW Albany Steam Station into the Bethlehem Energy Center. The New York State Board on Electric Generation Siting and the Environment issued a Certificate of Environmental Compatibility and Public Need for the BEC redevelopment project in February 2002.
