What about the new power plant?

The new power plant is now almost 20 years old. Freeport owns one of the 2 generators at the Buffalo Ave. location. The other is owned by an independent company that leases the land from the Village of Freeport and sells the power on the open market, they help Freeport save money by sharing many of the common expenses. Our generator continues to save our customers a tremendous amount of money. Any profits from the sale of energy are used to reduce the monthly FAC.
