Wyoming Public Radio News reported earlier this month that the Two Elk Energy Park received its seventh permit-extension. The billion-dollar project was approved 16 years ago – intended to generate power from low-grade coal in the Powder River Basin – but it has never been built. The Two Elk project is a subsidiary of the Colorado-based North American Power Group, which cited the recession and legal challenges for the delays.
The Editor and Chief of the on-line publication WyoFile has been busying covering the D-K-R-W project since it was first proposed. Dustin Bleizeffer has also written about other clean coal projects and he says this one actually might come to fruition.
