In today’s technology-driven world the demand for electricity continues to soar with the increased use of computers, cell phones, electric heat, cooling and all the modern conveniences we have come to depend upon. As older electric generating facilities outlive their useful life and electricity demand continues to rise there is a need for high-efficiency, state-of-the-art electric power generation. At Competitive Power Ventures (CPV), we are dedicated to building power facilities that reliably generate electricity in a way that is consistent with the values of the communities in which we operate.

We are excited about the opportunity that the CPV Fairview Energy Center presents to demonstrate our commitment to a cleaner energy future, and a better environment.

We hope you will take this opportunity to learn more about the CPV Fairview Energy Center and the significant energy, environmental, and economic benefits that it can bring to your immediate and surrounding community.


Project Overview

CPV Fairview plans to permit, build, and operate a new, 1,050 megawatt (“MW”) combined-cycle electric generating energy center in Jackson, Pennsylvania. That is enough energy to power over 1 million Pennsylvania homes. The project will use clean-burning, locally sourced natural gas through state-of-the-art technology, including two combustion turbines (“CT”), two heat recovery steam generators (“HRSG”) and one steam turbine (“ST”) capable of producing electricity in a highly efficient and environmentally friendly manner.
