KY Officials/DOE to Discuss Paducah Clean Coal Plant
By Chris Taylor
Washington D.C. – Kentucky officials are expected in Washington next week to discuss the proposed $7.5 billion coal-to-liquid fuel plant in Paducah. Lieutenant Governor Dan Mongiardo and Energy Secretary Len Peters will meet with the US Department of Energy officials Monday. Owners of the company proposing to build the plant recently changed the company name to Clean Coal Power Resources Paducah, LLC to give it local representation. Progress is expected if federal energy officials commit to the project. The Paducah Sun reports a formal announcement could be made early next year. A similar plant is also being proposed in Muhlenberg County.
