Natural gas is primary power for efficient electric generation
South Field Energy is an electric generation facility that uses clean-burning U.S. natural gas to produce power for American homes and businesses.
The facility is a significant stimulus for the economy of Columbiana County and surrounding communities. It also represents an important step forward as America moves toward energy independence. The facility is located on fewer than 20 acres of land that is part of a 150-acre parcel approximately three miles from Wellsville.
South Field Energy, in partnership with GE Energy, employs highly flexible and efficient gas turbine technology. New-generation GE technology will make the facility one of the most efficient in the U.S. It will be fueled by clean natural gas. The facility began commercial operations in September 2021.
