East Texas power plant suspends construction

by Donny on February 6, 2012

A small East Texas town known as “Sacul” about 165 miles northeast of Houston, suspended construction of a biomass power plant after a major accident injured and hospitalized two construction workers last week.

The accident was caused by something electrical and involved a brief fire according to Nacogdoches County emergency. The site has since been closed for investigation as Southern Power will take over ownership and operation of the Nacogdoches Generating Facility in the months to come after it goes into commercial operation.

The men who were injured in the accident went to Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital before being sent to Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, according to a spokesperson at Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital.

Sacul, Nacogdoches, Dallas, Houston and many other Texas towns are deregulated in the energy field which means if you’re in one of these or another deregulated area in the state, you can shop and compare multiple electricity rates for your home or business before choosing the best deal for your situation.

To begin the process, simply type your zip code into our compare box, select “commercial” or “residential” and then click the “compare” button. If you’re looking for a long-term residential rate, we recommend you select a fixed rate instead of a variable rate. This will help your electricity bill be more consistent on a month basis and you’ll know what to expect to pay.
