Harvey G. Stenger: Jamestown coal plant project is good investment
Jul 28, 2009 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Buffalo News
The Jamestown Oxy-Coal Project, a proposed carbon dioxide capture and storage demonstration project, is a component of a comprehensive energy policy that not only protects our environment but also provides for economic growth and prosperity.

My contention is that Mayor Teresi says this project is going to cost over 500 million dollars. If this project does get state and federal funding, it's still going to cost Jamestown taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars, especially when you consider that the cost has been steadily increasing from the original project cost of 145 million dollars. I don't think I can be in favor of this project because of the economic condition Jamestown is in.

I'm not sure if it's true but i heard the power plant has shut down because they're buying electric off the grid because it's cheaper..haven't seen the steam coming out of the plant nor have i seen coal trucks..just wondering

If I'm not mistaken, it's routine for the power plant to shut down for a couple of months every year.
