New power plant in the works

A wood-burning power plant is still in the works in Perry County.

Officials with ecoPower Generation say the plant could bring hundreds of jobs and millions of dollars to the area.

ecoPower Generation made a proposal for the plant in 2009.

Officials say they are in the final stages of development before they begin construction at the Coal Fields Industrial Park.
