Banner Image

The York 2 Energy Center is a 828-megawatt, dual-fueled, combined-cycle electric generating facility that will provide enhanced reliability to the regional power market. It is under construction on the same site as Calpine’s York Energy Center in Peach Bottom Township, Pennsylvania. The project is expected to begin commercial operations in 2018.

The plant will employ highly efficient combined-cycle technology with advanced environmental controls. Its combustion turbines will primarily use clean-burning natural gas but can also run on ultra-low-sulfur diesel fuel oil. This flexible, dual-fuel capability is increasingly important to ensure power reliability in the PJM region.
