Site description

Plant Crisp opened in 1957 and is operated by the Crisp County Power Commission (CCPC). It is the only power plant in Georgia that is not operated by Georgia Power Company. This 100 acre plant is in Warwick, Georgia near Lake Blackshear and Flint River. Crisp is a dual-fuel plant, powered by both coal and natural gas. The coal-fired unit produces 12.5 MW and the capacity of the natural gas combustion turbine is 5 MW. The by-products of the coal-fired unit are mostly fly ash and bottom ash. Crisp has an ash pond that was constructed in the mid-1970s that began as a disposal area in 1976. In 2015, coal burning was reduced and completely deactivated in 2017. Due to decreased use of the ash pond, CCPC plans on disposing of the coal ash off site.
