UGI’s Hunlock Creek Energy Center Now Operating on Natural Gas

Earlier last week WNEP reported on UGI’s Hunlock Creek facility switching over to natural gas. The energy plant has been switched over from coal to running 100% on natural gas.

UGI invested more than $125 million to convert the energy plant due to regulations and the lower cost of natural gas as a fuel source. Besides burning cleaner for the environment, UGI estimates that by switching to natural gas, the plant is now able to produce enough for 100,000 homes – three times more than when it was fueled by coal.

We’ve already posted about how Panda Power Funds is responsible for one of the largest coal to natural gas conversions in the U.S. The abundant supply of Marcellus Shale natural gas located nearby makes continued conversions, such as at the Hunlock Creek facility, a true no-brainer.
