This would be a MAJOR blow to the already fragile City of Henderson.

I hope they don't allow this to happen. This would really hurt the employment rates in Henderson and the economy here that is already suffering.

If this happens Henderson is screwed. There aren't enough industry jobs available here to sustain a viable economy. Henderson is just not a place where businesses are looking to relocate to. I see that there is alot of "talk" about attracting new business but we better be focusing on keeping the existing ones we have. If Alcan shuts down the trickle down would be disastrous.

The bottom line in all this legal corporate muscle flexing and PR campaigns meant to influence public opinion in their favor by all the involved entities, is that regardless how it turns out in the end, when the dust finally settles, all the other electric customers should probably be expecting to pay substantially higher rates for service.

The residential customers will definitely be paying higher rates. If Alcan closes and kenergy loses its largest customer and utility consumer who else do you think is gonna have to make the difference up. This is a no win situation that the city, the utility companies, and the residents of Henderson need to be concerned about.

Maybe you should read the article? The paper they allegedly filed is for discontinued service at the end of the 12 month period with no intentions to resume operations.

Yea it will kill Henderson! Most of the workers in the pot lines make around 70000 or more! Where are they going to find jobs around here making that kind of scratch?

Not around here that's for sure. After reading the article it is disheartening but I hope they get something worked out. It is bad enough that i69 will bypass Henderson now we have to worry about the good paying jobs we have leaving our area.

It's got nothing to do with quality workers. This threat of closure has to do with the cost of electricity and not job quality of workers.

Well thank God Big Rivers sees it your way and hiked the rates up. They must be some heavy drugs themselves, since they are the reason for the possible shut down.
