Jeff Keffer, the CEO and president of Longview Power, addressed the 2019 spring meeting of the West Virginia Oil and Natural Gas Association to emphasize the importance of building up the state's natural gas power generation capabilities due to aging and inefficient coal power plants.

The plant’s approach, he said, is to use whatever fuel is in abundance in order to produce cheap energy.
