Douglas Area Touts Itself for Clean-Burning Power Plant

Douglas, WY – A new study says that Converse County is ideally suited for a zero-emissions power plant proposed by the Bush Administration. The report says the county has sufficient land and water, community support, and a large enough workforce for the FutureGen plant. Unlike traditional coal-fired plants, this facility would remove and sequester carbon dioxide. That gas could then be used for enhanced oil and gas production. The study that touts Converse County for the FutureGen project was funded by the city of Douglas and the Converse Area New Development Organization.
