- Customers. MCPS is a significant step forward for the region. The plant will provide a stable and secure supply of electricity for a growing region, resulting in estimated savings of $1.7 billion over 30 years for Entergy Texas' customers. The plant will produce immediate benefits to customers through lower energy costs. These fuel savings will pay off the cost of construction after less than 10 years of operation - a third of the plant's lifecycle.
- Communities. According to an economic impact study from TXP Inc., the construction of this facility will generate $1 billion in economic activity across Texas, comprised of $410 million direct investment in the local area, as well as generating $307 million in worker earnings and 7,000 total supported jobs (direct and indirect).
- Environment. MCPS will be built with the environment in mind, featuring state-of-the-art emissions control technology that will lower emissions compared to the existing fleet through the use of high-efficiency, combined-cycle natural gas turbines.
