Gov. Kathleen Sebelius wrote to legislative leaders today revealing that Holcomb's developers, Sunflower Electric Power and Midwest Energy, had rejected a compromise plan from her administration.
Perhaps, the power of the Hive Mind of the web can help us understand this more. What do you all think? Is this a good compromise? Should she compromise at all?
The governor's letter says the compromise involved the following points.
- Build one new plant similar in size to the Sand Sage permit previously approved (660 MW);
base load power needs must receive top priority; Kansas
- Plant must be able to implement carbon sequestration technology;
- Commitment for 20% wind power (132 MW)
- Commitment for 100 MW of energy efficiency
- Net metering allowed in the Sunflower service area
