Power co-op has to justify new plant

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - East Kentucky Power Cooperative Inc. has
to justify why it's seeking to build a coal-fired power plant in
eastern Kentucky after complaints to the state regulatory agency.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports the Kentucky Public Service
Commission ordered on Tuesday the co-op to provide responses to
several questions raised in a complaint filed in October.

The Sierra Club, Kentucky Environmental Foundation and several
individuals questioned the need and cost of the $767 million plant
proposed for Clark County.

East Kentucky Power spokesman Nick Comer said the company
couldn't comment until it files its response.
