The Grand River Dam Authority announced the groundbreaking of a new combined-cycle electric generation unit, to be powered by Oklahoma’s natural gas. The unit, which is scheduled to come on line in 2017, will be located at the Grand River Energy Center in Chouteau, Okla. This addition marks the fi rst time in over 30 years that GRDA unveils a new electric genera- tion project. GRDA supplies power to several municipali- ties and some electric cooperatives in Oklahoma.
