PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) - The Paducah Power System board is looking into the possibility of selling capacity from its gas-fired peaking plant into a major power market in the northeast United States.

The Paducah Sun (https://bit.ly/1KHJkEs ) reports that the board recently approved a $50,000 deposit on a study to be conducted by PJM Interconnection, a Valley Forge, Pennsylvania-based regional transmission organization that coordinates the movement of wholesale electricity in 13 states and the District of Columbia.

Board chairman Hardy Roberts says he hopes the power system will be able to sell excess capacity to markets in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland.

Paducah Power System Director of Finance and Administration Dave Carroll says the board has not made up its mind yet on whether selling the capacity is a viable choice.
