Bayonne Energy Center Begins Commercial Operation
ESS congratulates Bayonne Energy Center, LLC (BEC) on commencing commercial operations in June. BEC is a 512 MW power plant that provides electricity to New York City via a 6.5 mile, 345 kV AC submarine electric transmission cable, which crosses Gowanus Bay and Upper New York Bay. Due to its use of natural gas and advanced emissions controls, BEC represents one of the most efficient energy facilities of its kind in the New Jersey / New York area - its emissions will be considerably lower than those of the area's existing generators.
