FERC Pulls the Plug on Rhode Island Gas-Fired Electric Plant

MDN previously told you about a natural gas-fired electric plant planned for the socialist paradise of Rhode Island, home to old money and people who oppose change of any kind (see New NatGas Powered Electric Plant Coming to…Rhode Island?!). The proposed plant would lower RI residents’ electric bills by a collective $280 million and replace aging coal and oil power plants–cleaning the air in the process. With the jobs created, the investment in the facility, and lower electric rates, it’s calculated this single plant will have a $1.3 billion impact on the economy of RI. And yet so-called environmentalists still opposed it. The plan was to begin construction in summer 2016 and have the plant up and running by 2019, which didn’t happen. The plan to build it is now effectively dead.
