Gas power plant to go forward

Oct 2, 2012 The Associated Press

CHEYENNE -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has approved plans to build a natural gas-fired power plant in Cheyenne.

Black Hills Corp. said Monday that it would move ahead with plans to begin construction on the $237 million, 132-megawatt plant now that it's gotten a greenhouse gas air permit from the EPA.

The plant is needed to help replace old coal-fired power generation units that would require expensive retrofitting to keep operating.
