(KSL News) -- Vineyard has taken the first step toward revitalizing the former Geneva Steel area.

Yesterday community leaders broke ground on a new power plant. Vineyard mayor Randy Farnsworth says the plant will bring desperately needed tax revenue to the town, which lost a giant financial boon after the bankruptcy, closure and current demolition of Geneva Steel.

The plant will deliver electrical power to hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses throughout the valley and is scheduled to be on line by summer of 2007.
