NTE Energy is making plans to develop a $450 million natural gas-fired power plant in North Carolina.

The planned 480-MW Kings Mountain Energy Center will use a Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Americas M501GAC advanced combustion turbine and steam turbine in combined cycle configuration.

Construction is expected to create about 300 industry jobs. NTE Energy has started the permitting process and submitted its transmission interconnection request to Duke Energy Carolinas. Construction is expected to begin in 2015 and be fully operational in 2018.

NTE Energy has also announced plans to build the Pecan Creek Energy Center in Texas and the Middletown Energy Center in Ohio.
