The 20-megawatt or more City of Coatesville Energy Park Keares proposed last week will attract new office or warehouse buildings to the community, all powered by renewable energy sources, according to a Daily Local News report.

The energy park project aims to combine a wind turbine, an anaerobic digestion plant, a hydro-power plant, compressed natural gas and combined heat and power with a micro-grid energy storage system to provide nearby businesses with reliable heat and power at below market prices.

The innovative energy park project is to be built on Manor Road behind the city’s Courtyard by Marriott, Keares Electrical Contracting’s President Bob Keares told the Coatesville City Council recently, the article said.
