Congressman Upton coming to Niles to discuss clean energy
NILES, Mich. -- Congressman Fred Upton is scheduled to visit with local leaders in Niles this coming Monday to talk about the final steps that need to be taken in order to complete the Indeck Niles Energy Center project.
The project will generate 1,000 megawatts of energy which is enough to power 635,000 homes and businesses by using clean natural gas and state-of-the-art technologies.
The Indeck Niles Center is meant to reduce the use of coal power in Southwestern Michigan.
Upton states, “The Indeck Niles Energy Center project would bring affordable energy, economic growth, and jobs to Niles."
He also went on to say, “It’s important to hear from the major stakeholders about their long-term vision for this project. I’m looking forward to being in Niles on Monday to discuss what we need to do to make this project a reality.”
Niles Mayor Rick Shelton, members of his staff, and multiple Indeck officials will be present to hear the Congressman speak.
