Natural gas serves as a bridge to a clean energy future, giving off less than half of the carbon emissions of coal when burned
Colorado Bend II Generating Station is a 1,143-megawatt (MW) combined-cycle gas and steam turbine generation facility in Wharton, Texas, owned and operated by Constellation. The facility began commercial operations in June 2017 and includes two low-carbon combined-cycle gas turbines (CCGT).
Colorado Bend II's gas turbines are the most advanced design of their type, making them two of the cleanest, most efficient combined-cycle gas turbine units in the country. The new units use air for cooling instead of water, which is important in drought-prone Texas.
