America’s Premier Competitive Power Company
... Creating Power for a Sustainable Future
The York 2 Energy Center is a 828-megawatt, dual-fueled, combined-cycle electric generating facility that helps provide reliability to the regional power market. 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.
