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.
