Will CT Gov Cave to Extremists and Block Gas-Fired Power Plant?

The State of Connecticut’s “Siting Council” changed its mind in July and approved NTE Energy’s proposed project to build a 650-megawatt natural gas-fired electric plant in Killingly (see Connecticut Approves New Natgas-Fired Electric Plant in Killingly). The Siting Council recognized that some 6,000 megawatts of older, less-efficient power plants in the region are retiring and without new plants coming online to provide electricity, Connecticut and its neighboring New England states will begin to experience rolling blackouts if they don’t make up the difference with new supplies of electricity. However, CT Gov. Ned Lamont now sounds like he’s having second thoughts on approving the plant.
