The Brunswick County Government, Brunswick County Industrial Development Authority (IDA) and Town of Lawrenceville are working in partnership to develop a strategy for the reuse of the former Saint Paul’s College campus. The closing of the college has greatly impacted the viability of our local economy. We are seeking expert consulting assistance to develop a plan and then implement that plan to make the property a major component of our economic base (defined as the exporting portion of the local economy) and a generator of “non-basic” economic activity. The potential to reuse the property as an institution of higher education is of primary interest to us.
The newest member of Dominion Virginia Power's generation fleet, the 1,358 megawatt, environmentally clean Brunswick Power Station began producing electricity for the company's customers on Monday, April 25, 2016.
- Station's 1,358 megawatts can power 325,000 homes
- During construction more than $824 million in economic benefits was generated
- Station uses efficient technology and clean natural gas
With natural gas as its fuel, the Brunswick County Power Station will produce almost 1,360 megawatts of electricity – enough to power nearly 340,000 households - and is expected to save customers more than $1 billion over its expected life.
