Jill Terreri has a piece (URL below) on a $25 million expansion that AES is planning. This is certainly welcome news in a county that's desperate for any measurable economic investment. It certainly makes those who said the PILOT will be a catalyst for future development look good, though I doubt it will sway the opinion of those against the PILOT.
It will be interesting to see how this announcement is welcomed by Somerset officials and if it will impact in any meaningful way this November's elections. My initial reaction is that those who have blind hatred for AES will find ways to poke at this announcement. I hope I'm wrong.
