Robinson Power Company has revised the plans for their proposed Beech Hollow Energy Project in Washington County. They will be burning natural gas to generate electricity as part of the revised plan for a $450 million power plant at the border of Washington and Allegheny counties. The developers of the Beech Hollow Energy Project in Robinson Towship told township planners Monday night they want to fuel the plant with natural gas in addition to the waste coal that already has been approved. It would be about a 50/50 split with gas coming from Marcellus Shale. The 300-gross-megawatt plant would use 21 million to 23 million cubic feet of natural gas each day.
