NextEra Energy Resources inks firms capacity deal for Lowman pipeline

NextEra Energy Resources LLC signed a 40-year firm capacity agreement for its Lowman pipeline to supply natural gas to PowerSouth Energy Cooperative's approximately 700-MW Lowman Energy Center in Alabama.

The 50-mile Lowman pipeline is advancing through the development phase, according to an Oct. 22 news release. It has a targeted in-service date in mid-2022, depending on regulatory approvals.

The pipeline will support a coal-to-gas modernization project. As previously reported, the Lowman Energy Center is set to replace the 556-MW Charles R. Lowman coal-fired plant, which the cooperative opted to retire citing federal coal ash regulations. According to S&P Global Market Intelligence data, the original plant has been operating since 1969.

Along with this announcement, NextEra Energy Resources parent NextEra Energy Inc. released the company's third-quarter results.
