Special to the Citizen

Duke Energy Florida has scheduled a public open house on its proposed $1.5 billion combined-cycle natural gas plant in Citrus County.

The event will be held from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, July 10, at the Plantation on Crystal River, 9301 W. Fort Island Trail, Crystal River. 

The primary purpose of the open house is to provide information about the project, including the combined-cycle natural gas technology, project schedule, approval and permitting process and environmental protection aspects," explained Duke spokeswoman Heather Danenhower. "We anticipate providing more information about employment opportunities in 2015 after we have selected an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor later this year. 

"The EPC contractor is expected to start hiring workers gradually in early 2016, if all required and regulatory permits and approvals are received. Construction and related activities are expected to add several million dollars to the local tax base and economy.
