Manchin Applauds $615M Energy Production Investment in Northern Panhandle

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) today issued the following statement on Moundsville Power LLC investing in $615 million in energy production and economic development in Marshall County.

“I am so pleased that Moundsville Power LLC decided to locate in Marshall County. This $615 million energy and economic development investment is great news not only for Moundsville, but also for the Northern Panhandle and our entire state. Yesterday, I spoke with Andy Dorn, managing partner of Moundsville Power, and he shared details of the plant and their plan to use $100 million in natural gas per year. This is a hefty investment that may spur additional development for the region. The company officials truly understand that West Virginia is a great place to do business, and I look forward to working with them to ensure that the plant and the good jobs that come with it become a reality.”
