Project Overview

The CPV Fairview Energy Center is a 1,050 megawatt natural gas-fueled combined-cycle electric generation facility currently under construction in Jackson Township, Cambria County, PA. The facility will generate enough electricity to power over 1 million homes and businesses, helping Pennsylvania to safely meet its demand for energy with reliable, cost-effective and environmentally-responsible low emissions generation.

Combining the most advanced generation technology available with clean natural gas and state-of-the-art emissions controls, CPV Fairview will be one of the cleanest, most efficient conventional generation facilities in Pennsylvania once complete. The facility will use clean-burning, regionally sourced natural gas and feature two combustion turbines (“CT”), two heat recovery steam generators (“HRSG”) and one steam turbine (“ST”) in order to maximize efficiency.

As part of CPV’s commitment to conserving natural resources, the facility will utilize industrial water from the Cambria Somerset Authority (CSA) for non-contact cooling purposes, sourced through a new 8 mile, 24" pipeline and 2 electric powered pump stations to be built by CPV and owned and operated by CSA. Once the water cycles through the plant multiple times, it will be treated and returned to the CSA via a pipeline where it can be used again for industrial processes.
