Homer City Generating Station is an efficient and reliable 1,884-MW coal-fired merchant power plant in Center Township in Indiana County, PA, 45 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.
Generating Units 1 & 2 were built in 1969, and anti-pollution scrubbers are being installed on them. Generating Unit 3 was built in 1977 and already is outfitted with a scrubber.
The plant sells its baseload power into wholesale power generation markets in PJM Interconnection and NYISO.
The plant employs approximately 250 people, about 75 percent of them represented by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 459.
After a competitive review, GE Energy Financial Services selected an affiliate of NRG Energy Services to take over operations and maintenance of the Homer City Generating Station.
