In its continued commitment to provide members with safe, reliable and affordable energy, Owen Electric Cooperative has partnered with Harshaw Trane to construct a 2 MW (megawatt) natural gas generation facility.
Excavators broke ground in March, preparing the foundation of the new facility set by crane Tuesday morning. The unit consists of a single, enclosed Caterpillar Model G3516H natural gas-fueled, 1988 kW generator; it is located adjacent to the headquarters building.
