New York Poised to Close Last Coal-fire Power Plant

Longview Power LLC Plans to Start Building West Virginia Coal Plant This Year

LCG, April 27, 2005--Longview Power LLC, a subsidiary of GenPower LLC, plans to commence construction of its proposed coal-fired power plant this year. The 600-MW Longview project will use a pulverized coal-fired boiler with a supercritical steam cycle. The site is located in Monongalia County, West Virginia near Allegheny Energy's Fort Martin power plant.

The project was proposed in late 2002. Last week, Monongalia County Circuit Judge Russell Clawges Jr. ruled that all of the agencies involved in the payment in lieu of taxes agreement negotiated for the Longview project followed the law. An air-quality permit for the plant has been received from the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection, along with a conditional site permit from the state's Public Service Commission. Longview plans to file supplemental information for the site permit and an application for a site permit for transmission lines later this month with the West Virginia Public Service Commission.
