Midland Power Plant Makes Plans For $500 Million Expansion

A mid-Michigan power plant is making plans for a more than $500 million expansion.

The Midland Cogeneration Venture is expected to create jobs, add to the tax base and increase the electrical capacity.

Construction for the venture will start once a power agreement is finished.

The project will take approximately two-and-a-half years, and will employ around 700 workers.
