The Birdsboro Borough Council approved a land development plan for a 450-MW combined-cycle power plant proposed by Birdsboro Power LLC.
The 4-3 vote clears the way for construction of the $480 million facility at the site of a former Armorcast plant in Berks County, the Reading Eagle reported.
Birdsboro Power had said the company needed to close on the property in January to avoid penalties.
As of April 2016, the company hoped to begin construction in the first quarter of 2017 with an operational date of April 2019.
