Construction Begins on Natural Gas Plant --> Electricity West of Williston

Construction is just beginning on Pioneer natural gas plant west of Williston. It`s going to be a peaking plant, which means It will provide extra electricity when demand is at it`s highest.

Peaking stations are built to run faster than other electric plants.

"Once you hit the start button, then we`ll be running online at full load in about 15 minutes. That`s the beauty of a peaking station," Hill said.
Energy: 45 megawatts at peak power. 1 MW can power 800 "average" residential homes."
