"CPV has treated the City as a partner in the operation and has been an asset to our community. When they took over operation of the project, they faced many hurdles including recommencing construction of the plant itself, working with the city on many critical issues left by the previous developers and finally managing the clean up of a pre-existing contamination issue on the site. As someone who is on the frontline when it comes to dealing with the community's concems, I offer my recommendation of CPV as a "partner" to the City and member of the community."
James L. Richitelli, Jr.Mayor, City of Milford, CT
"The CPV Towantic Energy Center represents one of the largest private-sector infrastructure projects underway in our region, and will have a profound impact in helping to meet the growing need for safe and reliable electric generating capacity to fuel the continued growth of Connecticut's economy."
Bill PurcellPresident, Greater Valley Chamber of Commerce
"The jobs created by this major energy infrastructure project are substantial and extremely welcomed by the hard-working construction tradespeople of Connecticut."

"The addition of 785 MW (net output) of natural gas-fired power from a dual-fuel capability plant will both shore up the supply needs of Connecticut and the region and improve the reliability of the electric system. Further, the ability of the proposed facility to quickly ramp up or ramp down its output will allow it to quickly adjust to varying levels of generation from renewable energy facilities going into the grid."
