Co-located with It is York Energy Center in Peach Bottom Township, Pennsylvania, the employs highly efficient combined-cycle technology with advanced environmental controls.  

Electricity is first generated at York 2 via two natural gas combustion turbines.  The plant’s two heat recovery steam generators then use exhaust heat from the combustion turbines to produce steam, which is routed to a steam turbine to create more power.  Its combustion turbines 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.
