Homer Electric out on coal plant restart

Posted: Wednesday, July 22, 2009

FAIRBANKS - The state's industrial development authority will team with the Golden Valley Electric Association on the proposed restart of a coal plant in Healy.

Initial plans to restart the 50-megwatt plant included the Homer Electric Association, but directors for that utility backtracked and are no longer included in the agreement.

The Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority said Monday it's in the public interest to have the coal plant developed as soon as possible.
