PECO Energy Buys Power Plant
In a unique agreement with two of its largest industrial customers, PECO Energy Co. has purchased USX Corp.'s Fairless Works power plant in Bucks County, Pa. The plant will burn landfill gas purchased from Waste Management Inc., which owns two nearby landfills.
The Fairless Works site hosts the sheet- and tin-finishing operations of the U.S. Steel Group of USX Corp., along with several other industrial plants.
