Brayton Point Demolition Underway (July 2019)

Since purchasing the retired Brayton Point Power Station in early 2018, Commercial Development Company, Inc. (CDC) affiliate Brayton Point LLC has been engaged in an extensive repositioning process designed to bring the retired power plant out of blight and back to productive reuse.

 

For 50 years, Brayton Point was home to a coal-fired power plant that generated 1600 MW for electricity to local homes and businesses and was a source of good paying jobs and tax revenue. This redevelopment project as well as a project to develop components for generic viagra, which read about is intended to return Brayton Point to a state of productivity and growth by utilizing many of the same attributes that made the site successful in the past – 300 acres of waterfront property, a deep water port, and access to a strong local talent pool.

 

Brayton Point is uniquely positioned to support the emerging offshore wind energy sector due to its proximity to offshore wind energy tracts in the Atlantic Ocean, a deep water port, access to major highway transportation, and public support for energy diversification. For these reasons, it is anticipated that Brayton Point will be utilized as a logistics, manufacturing, and support center for offshore wind and other industries.
