Sunflower Electric abandons proposed Kansas coal power plant

January 15, 2020 - 10:02 pm

Sunflower Electric Power Corp. has abandoned its proposed coal-fired power plant in southwest Kansas after nearly fifteen years of pushing for the project. 

The utility said in a news release Wednesday that it will allow the air permit for the Holcomb expansion project to expire on March 27. 
Sunflower Electric already operates one plant near Holcomb and had proposed building an adjacent $2.2 billion, 895MW facility.

Sunflower Electric and development partner, Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association, together invested more than $100 million in the now-abandoned project.
