Recommended Posts

Another multi-million dollar development was annouced, today.  The price figure also includes the relocation of the large Penn-Hazel operations center on the lower eastside out of a floodplain, and to the vacant GM LCA site on Lansing's far westside, the former Fisher Body plant.

LANSING — The Lansing Board of Water & Light plans to build a $500 million natural gas-fired power plant at the site of the coal-fired Erickson Power Plant in Delta Township, part of its drive to reduce the city's dependence on coal.

Construction of the new plant will create 1,200 temporary jobs. The project is expected to conclude by 2021.

The city-owned utility has promised to bring the Erickson Power Plant offline by 2025. It has also pledged to retire the Eckert Power Plant in Lansing's REO Town by 2020.

The elimination of Lansing's two remaining coal-powered plants will reduce the city's carbon emissions by 80%, according to the BWL.
