Clover Power Station Award

Clover Power Station Receives Award for Excellence in Operational Management

CHASE CITY, VA. ― Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative (MEC) is pleased to announce that the Clover Power Station in Halifax County has been recognized as the best mid-sized power station in the country by Navigant, a global company that specializes in management consulting in several fields, including the energy sector. This award was presented in a ceremony at the power station in recently and honors the two-unit, 865-megawatt coal-fired power station for demonstrating excellence in cost and operational management over a five-year period, from 2007 to 2011.


The power station is jointly owned by Dominion Virginia Power and Old Dominion Electric Cooperative (ODEC), the generation-and-transmission cooperative that provides wholesale power to Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative and 10 other electric distribution cooperatives in Virginia, Maryland and Delaware.  ODEC and its member systems are not-for-profit electric cooperatives that are owned by the consumer members they serve. Clover Power Station earned the first-place award for power stations with units between 201 and 500 megawatts. The award was based on detailed analysis of five factors dealing with cost, performance and safety data from Navigant’s proprietary Generation Knowledge Service database.


John Lee, chairman of the Board of Directors ODEC Power Supply Committee, and president and CEO of Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative, comments, ”The Clover Power Station has proven time and again to be a valuable power supply asset for serving the electric needs of Cooperative members throughout Virginia, Maryland and Delaware; and this recognition is testament to the excellent job ODEC and Dominion do as partners in the facility. We are very pleased that the Clover Power Station is located in Southside Virginia and are proud of the fact that it is an excellent corporate citizen in Halifax County. We congratulate all those who play a role in the safe, highly efficient and very successful management and operation of the facility.”


Clover Power Station did especially well in the safety and availability categories, finishing second and fourth, respectively, out of the more than 50 similar-sized units in its category.


“This is truly a tribute to every employee at the station and their hard work and attention to detail,” says Cristie Neller of Dominion Virginia Power, who serves as director for Clover Power Station. “The nice thing about this award is that while it highlights areas of excellence, it also shows where you rank against peers and where you can improve. We are thrilled by this honor but are not content. We know we can do even better.”
