Beckjord Power Station
The Walter C. Beckjord Generating Station was a formerly 1.433-GW dual-fuel power generating facility located in New Richmond, Ohio, 22 miles east of Cincinnati, Ohio. Of the two Beckjord power plants, one was coal-fired (Units 1–6) and the other was oil-fired (Units GT1–GT4). It was originally built by Cinergy (originally Cincinnati Gas and Electric Company), which was bought by Duke Energy in 2006. All generation at the site was ceased as of the end of 2014.
