Salem Township, Pa. — The Caithness Freedom Generating Station team continued its commitment to
the community this year by contributing $21,500 to the Salem Township Volunteer Fire Co., along with
holiday donations to the Berwick United Way, Salvation Army of Berwick, Shickshinny Area Food Pantry
and Nescopeck Area Community Cupboard.
“We are pleased to support several excellent local organizations this year. As we continue to navigate the
pandemic, we must take this opportunity to recognize the community efforts and volunteers that make this a great place to live and work,” said Ross D. Ain, president of Caithness Energy LLC.
The fire department donation marks the fifth installment of a long-term commitment to the fire company
and the community that will continue through 2038. The Freedom team has supported several public
improvement projects in Salem Township and the surrounding area, totaling more than $800,000
designated for completed community projects and future commitments.
“Salem Township appreciates all the support and various donations, specifically to the Salem Township
Volunteer Fire Company. Caithness Freedom Generating Station has been a good neighbor of our
community. It’s nice to work with organizations that support and be an active part of our community.
Thank you!” said Richard Talanca, chairman of the Salem Township Board of Supervisors.
Caithness Energy LLC partnered with Moxie Energy LLC to develop the generating station, an
approximately 1,050-megawattm, natural gas-fired greenfield power project in Salem Township.
The Freedom Generating Station transitioned to commercial operation in September 2018 and can
provide enough power to supply approximately 900,000 homes throughout the region.
Using state-of-the-art technology, the plant is the highest-efficiency user of natural gas in the region. The
plant’s dry-cooling technology means that water usage is 95% lower than that of a plant of the same size
using traditional cooling technology. Additionally, a highly efficient combined cycle plant such as Freedom
reduces CO2 emissions by 3.2 million tons per year compared to older steam plants.
