A proposed coal plant in Wyoming that has been in the planning stages for two decades is all but dead following years of delays. The Campbell County, Wyo. Attorney’s Office is putting the property for the Two Elk plant up for auction to recover more than $200,000 in unpaid property taxes. A federal investigation is looking into potential misuse of $10 million in stimulus funding. The company was denied a request for a permit extension. And PacifiCorp, a key utility partner, has terminated a transmission agreement for power from the plant, which was first proposed in 1996. Although the company says it intends to continue with the project, it will have to start its permitting from scratch.
