-Industrial Info is tracking $11.52 billion in Power Industry projects that are set to kick off this year in the U.S. Northeast, which includes the states of Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey and Delaware.

Industrial Info will be presenting details of these and other projects and trends at our upcoming Market Outlook & Networking Event in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. This event will be held May 11, beginning at 3:30 p.m. at the Radisson Valley Forge. After the presentations by our industry experts, Industrial Info will hold a networking session with complimentary drinks and hors d'oeuvres, allowing you valuable time to meet and discuss the presentation with our experts and your industry peers.

Among the largest Power Industry projects set to kick off in the region is the grassroot, natural gas-fired Beech Hollow Power Station in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania.
