HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) - The process for building a new natural gas-fueled power plant in Holland continued yesterday, as the BPW Board approved retaining NTH Consultants, at a price of 45 thousand dollars, to provide air permitting services for the proposed facility. The panel also went behind closed doors to discuss a property acquisition, perhaps for the new plant that will be built separately from the coal-fired DeYoung complex on Pine Avenue, which will be gradually decommissioned. Last month, city council endorsed the new plant project, which environmentalists oppose due to fracking concerns.
