Proposed Invenergy Power Plant Dealt Major Setback

Regional grid operator moves to terminate key contract


September 20, 2018 (PROVIDENCE, RI) – Conservation Law Foundation (CLF) released the following statement today in response to ISO New England’s intention to terminate a key contract with Invenergy, marking a major setback for the company’s proposed power plant. The regional grid operator effectively determined that New England does not need the power that would be generated by the company’s proposed plant in Burrillville.

“Today’s filing is proof positive of what CLF has argued from day one: Invenergy’s plant is simply not needed,” said Jerry Elmer, Senior Attorney at CLF. “The fracked gas and diesel oil plant would create climate-damaging greenhouse gas pollution at a time when we should be putting all of our efforts into advancing clean energy. It’s time for Invenergy to admit defeat and withdraw its permit application.”
