JACKSON GENERATION

Welcome to

by FH_Chicago
JACKSON GENERATION is designed to meet Illinois’ changing power needs. Our goal is to help modernize and diversify the power grid by adding a state-of-the-art combined cycle power plant. This combined cycle plant will run off a gas and steam turbine together, leading to more efficiency in power generation. The JACKSON GENERATION plant will be able to generate approximately 1,000-1,200 megawatts (MW), enough energy to power 1.2 million homes.

The new plant will enable Illinois to take advantage of increasingly affordable natural gas and will:

  • Keep electricity rates lower for consumers
  • Lessen Illinois’ dependence on inefficient, costly and outdated coal-fired generating plants
  • Keep Illinois competitive with other states

THE NEW PLANT WILL...

Be Efficient

Up to 50% more efficient than peaking plants.

Produce Low Emissions

Producing among the lowest emissions of any fossil fuel generation facility in the U.S.

Be Reliable

Fast, flexible, efficient, and reliable.
