Louisville Gas and Electric and Kentucky Utilities are asking for approval to build a new 700 million dollar natural gas-fired generating plant in western Kentucky, and a smaller solar-powered station at one of their existing sites.

Spokeswoman Chris Whelan said the new gas-fired facility in Muhlenberg County will be similar to the station being built at Cane Run in Jefferson County. The companies are phasing out three of their coal-fired plants.
