The White Stallion Energy company is a step closer to bringing their plant, 2200 plus temporary jobs for 5 years and over 200 permanent jobs to the area. Towns are split on the growth and progress. Concerns over the COAL based plant have the Sierra Club and many locals in litigation. The town of BAY CITY, TEXAS started gearing up for the expansion of the South Texas Nuclear Plant and the White Stallion plant several years ago. Hotels, Motels, RV Parks and many new business began their development and or expansion. Months and Months of legal josting has forced some businesses serious hardships and or to completely close their doors down. This obvious by the drive around the square in Bay City. Now White Stallion is a step closer White Stallion Cooling Water.
Double Whammy!!! The Tsunami that hit the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station in Japan halted ALL nuclear plant expansions and development worldwide. In Bay City, the STNP one of the safest in the world was in the process of doubling in size. Everything was brought to a halt!!! Now some recent activity. An additional investor. STNP PARTNER.
The South Texas Nuclear Project would result in over 6000 temporary jobs over a 5-7 year period and over 100 pemenant jobs.
This affects the travel and tourism industry in many ways. RV parks will flourish as will hotels, motels and local businesses. Housing industry will also be greatly impacted. Not to mention over 1,500,000 homes that will have power. NO more brown outs from this Texas heat.
We need more jobs and RV Parks to support the large number of people making transitions from homes to RV living. Texas has been a leader and had held its head obove water while we have seen many states is dispair. LET'S KEEP TEXAS STRONG!!!
