Major Progress Continues In Sherman Power Plant Construction

Posted:

SHERMAN, TX -- Major progress is being made on a new gas-fired power plant that is being built on the south side of town.

The Panda Power Funds plant off Progress Drive broke ground last November, and will sell energy into the power grid around Texas.

The company says it will be able power more than 400,000 homes. A large part of the structure, which has two large turbines, is now complete, and the rising structure and cranes are visible from Highway 75.

Most of the labor for the project is in the construction. The plant will only take about 27 employees to run once it is finished.
