Kansas Legislature Approves Energy Plan with Sunflower's Proposed Coal-fired Plant

LCG, May 12, 2009--The Kansas Legislature adjourned the 2009 session with an energy plan that includes a new, 895-MW, coal-fired unit proposed by Sunflower Electric Power Corporation (Sunflower). Mark Parkinson, the new Governor, led a settlement that allows Sunflower to install the unit in western Kansas.

The Comprehensive Energy Package approved over the weekend permits the construction of the 895-MW, coal-fired unit at an existing power plant near Holcolm, Kansas. The legislation also includes a renewable portfolio standards for utilities and energy efficiency program requirements for the state government.

Governor Parkinson recently replaced Kathleen Sebelius, who became U.S. Secretary for Health and Human Services. While governor, Ms. Sebelius denied an air quality permit for Sunflower's proposed coal-fired unit and vetoed three measures submitted by the Legislature to overturn the decision to reject the permit.

Governor Parkinson must now approve the proposed Comprehensive Energy Package.
