Construction of an underground pipeline that will carry natural gas to the Greenidge power plant is expected to start soon. “We have about 30 conditions to meet as part of our approval,” plant manager Dale Irwin said. “We’ve met most of them, but the last few should be in place soon, and then we can get approval to start.” New York State Electric & Gas built the plant in 1937. It burned coal until its 2011 closing. Greenidge Generations Holdings LLC, the current owner of the property, plans to convert the fuel used at the electricity-generating facility from coal to natural gas.
