FirstEnergy Corp. is conducting a long-term study to determine whether it is feasible to reopen its Hatfield’s Ferry Power Plant in Monongahela Township, Greene County.
“We don’t have current plans to restart the plant,” FirstEnergy spokeswoman Jennifer Young said Tuesday. “We’re only evaluating whether this would be a feasible option down the road.”
FirstEnergy closed the 1,710-megawatt plant and its 370-megawatt Mitchell Power plant in Washington County in October 2013. The two coal-fired plants together employed about 380 workers.
