Proposed coal-fired plant in Virginia wins regulatory approval for tests

By Dorothy Davis 

Old Dominion Electric Cooperative (ODEC) has received a state permit to conduct tests in the James River for its proposed $6 billion coal-fired plant in Surry County, The Virginian-Pilot reports. 

The unanimously approved permit will allow the utility to run a test program to help determine what type of metal screen would best serve a pipeline for cooling water to the proposed Cypress Creek Power Station.

ODEC’s Cypress Creek Power Station will burn approximately 9,000 tons of coal daily and is expected to create enough energy to supply almost half a million homes.
