E.F. Barrett Power Station Repowering Project – Island Park Energy Center
National Grid is proposing to repower its E. F. Barrett Power Station located in the Town of Hempstead, Nassau County, New York. The proposed repowering will result in a new modern energy center at the Barrett Station through the installation of new, state-of-the art electric generators and removal of existing electric generating equipment currently on the site. The new energy center will provide a more efficient and cost-effective facility to produce electricity while minimizing impacts on the surrounding communities and providing tax benefits into the future. The repowering, once approved by LIPA and licensed, will also provide numerous construction jobs during the construction period.
