Global Energy was founded in 1988 by Harry Graves, a former executive at Procter & Gamble. The Lima Energy plant will provide power to Procter & Gamble Co.'s plant in Lima, Ohio. The plant sits on a 63-acre site of the former Locomotive Works purchased from the City of Lima.
Construction on the plant began in 2005; in Oct. 2006, Global Energy halted construction on the plant, but with plans to resume construction once full financing is in place. However, delays have forced Global Energy to apply for an extension on its air permit from the Ohio EPA, and planned changes to the plant design mean that the proposed permit modification will trigger a new round of public notice and comments. In Jan. 2008, the Sierra Club filed suit against Lima Energy, charging that the company is moving ahead on the project without securing valid permits.
In 2018 the project was formally cancelled.
