AGL has released details for a gas-fired power plant in New South Wales, as part of its plans to replace the aging Liddell coal-fired station and move towards cleaner energy.
|The Liddell Power Station will be replaced by a new gas-fired power plant in 2022.|
The company said it was investing up to $400 million in the 252-megawatt facility to be built near Newcastle and be completed during 2022.
Its announcement to the Australian stock exchange follows pressure from the Federal Government to sell the Liddell coal-fired station in the New South Wales Hunter Valley, so it could stay open beyond its planned closure in 2022.
