The shale boom caused an oil price crash in 2014 as many sought fields to produce natural gas.
Now, despite competition from solar and other alternative energy sources, electricity producers are building near natural gas sources to save on fuel.
These gas-fired power plants are capable of powering more than eight million homes each.
Invenergy and Calpine Corporation are among the companies building the plants, which are scheduled to be opened between 2018 and 2020.
Some critics speculate the shale boom will not last as discoveries of new reserves were the fewest on record in 2017.
Actions have consequences.
