Oxford power plant is commissioned

While it has been online since June, the CPV Towantic Energy Center on Woodruff Hill Road was formally commissioned by state and local officials Wednesday, acknowledging what is now one of the state’s largest single generator plants — second only to Dominion Energy’s Millstone nuclear power plant in Waterford. While its billed output capped at 805 megawatts, CPV Towantic has been operating at much less to provide electricity and other services to more than 800,000 New England homes and businesses. Following construction, the plant will support more than 20 jobs on a permanent basis.
