E3 Served as Independent Engineer on Jackson Generation Energy Center
E3 Consulting served as the Independent Engineer on the 1,200-megawatt Jackson Generation facility, located in Elwood, Illinois, which achieved commercial operation in May 2022. Developed by J-Power USA, Jackson is the first advanced combined cycle power plant in Illinois and is among the most efficient and lowest-emitting natural gas-fueled plants in North America.
The facility will be part of the PJM Interconnection and will be able to operate flexibly, supporting the electric grid as renewable generation continues to increase.
