State agency asks public to weigh in on plan to build coal-fired power plant

The state Dept. of Environmental Quality is asking people to weigh in on new aspects of the long-delayed plan to build a coal-fired power plant in Rogers City.

Last year the DEQ denied a permit for the proposed 600 megawatt power plant after finding that Wolverine had not demonstrated a need for the facility.

Wolverine sued, and Missaukee County Circuit Court ruled that lack of need is not a legal basis to deny a permit.

The state is now poised to finalize a permit for the project but new federal rules require that Wolverine first demonstrate how it will use the “Best Available Control Technology” to limit its greenhouse gas emissions.

According to state regulators the plant has the potential to emit 6,050,090 tons of carbon dioxide a year.

The company’s plan for dealing with greenhouse gas rules is available at the DEQ website.

The DEQ will take comments on this aspect of the project at a May 19th hearing scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. in the Rogers City High School Gymnasium, 1033 West Huron Avenue, Rogers City.

The agency notes:

Interested participants are advised that hearing administrators will not dialogue during the public comment hearing, and only comments on the specific aspects noted above will be included in the record. All other aspects of the permit have been through the public process.

The Michigan Land Use Institute, which opposes the coal plant, is organizing carpools to the hearing.
