BLP new facility rendering 2

This rendering shows an upriver view of the Board of Light & Power’s proposed peaking plant and Operations and Technical Center on Harbor Island. The BLP said it will now reconsider its plans for Harbor Island, including possibly removing local power generation from those plans.

The Board of Light & Power’s 2022 budget and five-year capital improvement plan were approved earlier this week, including funds to continue redevelopment on Harbor Island.

Specifically, the BLP will begin final coal ash remediation on the island. Additionally, construction is being planned for an Operations and Technical Center, which includes a 12.5-megawatt, gas-fired combined heat and power peaking plant.
