HEBER, Utah (AP) -- A new hydroelectric plant will be dedicated Wednesday at the base of the Jordanelle Dam.

The $21.5 million power plant houses two turbines capable of generating enough energy to supply 9,000 homes per year.

The plant is a public-private partnership between the federal government, Heber Light and Power and the Central Utah Water Conservancy District.

Tours of the plant were to begin Wednesday afternoon, followed by a dedication ceremony at 6 p.m.
