The company already has two of what are called peaking electric generators in Hopewell Township, York County.

Those generators feed the power grid on days with extreme temperatures and when demand is high. Township leaders plan to vote today on whether to let the company build solar panels and batteries to store power on the existing power production site.

Gen-On hopes to have the panels and batteries working by 2025.
