Natural gas serves as a bridge to a clean energy future, giving off less than half of the carbon emissions of coal when burned
Handley Generating Station is owned and operated by Constellation. It is a three-unit, 1,265-megawatt (MW) natural gas-fueled electric generation facility located in Fort Worth, Texas, that provides electricity to customers in the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) when needed.
Handley dates back to 1902, when the Northern Texas Traction Company built a generating plant, the largest in the area, along the adjacent Lake Erie. When Unit 1 was built, it was the first outdoor steam electric fossil power plant of its type in the industry. Now known as Lake Arlington, the lake serves as a popular recreation and amusement area for the local community.
