Funds Sought for Peat-Fired Generator

North Carolina’s Electric Membership Corporations are seeking funding sources for construction of a peat-fired generating plant near Creswell in Washington County. The plans include a preliminary feasibility study of the proposed plant, which would be the first of its kind in the country. With North Carolina’s extensive peat reserves, the proposed plant could supply all of the state’s energy needs for at least twenty-three years.
