What’s happening at the Panda Temple power project?
A power project has literally hundreds of items which must be completed prior to the beginning of construction. These involve:
- Securing environmental permits,
- Negotiating power purchase agreements,
- Procuring gas supplies,
- Acquiring adequate water supplies,
- Identifying and reserving power generation equipment,
- Working with local officials to obtain mutually beneficial tax agreements,
- Engineering and designing the facility, and
- Financing the project.
Panda Energy has more than 50 professionals experienced in each of the above areas and more. They are working to complete the task necessary to see the Panda Temple Generating Station come out of the ground.
