In June 2018 MDN told you about a plan by Midwest utility company Vectren to build a 900-megawatt natural gas-fired power plant (and a 50-acre solar farm) to replace a retiring coal plant, in Warrick County, Indiana (see Indiana Utility Files Request to Build New Gas-Fired Electric Plant). Building the gas plant and solar farm would cost Vectren (meaning ratepayers) $940 million. The cost is passed on to ratepayers because Vectren is regulated, which set up a fierce battle to get it approved. We suspect Marcellus/Utica gas will feed the plant, which is why we’re interested. Unfortunately, yesterday the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission rejected the proposal. Meaning it’s dead.
