Take a look at this thread, the mayor posted comments about the plan way back in 2009. Her contact information is included in her posts. I sent her a few e-mails since then for an update, but never received any reply. Maybe you will have better luck. Let us know.

Research park and regional employment center for Waxhaw?

Hmm. NTE plugs in a 480 MW natural gas fired generator near a national gas line in Kings Mountain. Duke Energy unplugs a 450 MW 1929 vintage coal fired generator just east of CLT.

Net, 30MW For comparison purposes, the hydroelectric generators on the Cowans Ford Dam put out 350 MW.
