The HECA project will create thousands of high quality jobs during construction and hundreds of permanent jobs when fully operational in 2017. The project will provide $239 million in annual economic impact to Kern County and $52 million in annual labor income. Construction and annual plant operations will also generate tens of millions of dollars in new tax revenues and billions of dollars in economic benefits over the next 20 years.
Construction will take 3 years. This construction, however, is going to be taking place far from the residential and commercial centers of Kern County, and is not likely to be noticed by many of the region’s residents. For those disruptions that do take place, they will be greatly offset by future benefits: (less trucking, more jobs, low carbon power, transition to a hydrogen energy economy).
