Rhode Island's Attorney General Peter Kilmartin has announced his opposition to a natural gas power plant that has been proposed for the Town of Burrillville by a Chicago-based energy company called Invenergy.
Rhode Island’s Energy Facility Siting Board decided Tuesday morning during a hearing to exclude from evidence resolutions from 35 cities and towns opposing a proposed natural gas power plant in Burrillville.
Invenergy, developer of a proposed natural gas power plant in the Town of Burrillville, filed a motion Tuesday claiming resolutions opposing the project from nearly all Rhode Island cities and towns are irrelevant to whether the plant is needed.
In the latest Invenergy news, motions to dismiss the company’s Burrillville power plant application were denied by the Energy Facility Siting Board Thursday. The Town of Burrillville and the Conservation Law Foundation filed the motions when the question of who would provide Invenergy with a water supply was still up in the air.
