Wyoming regulators approve Dry Fork Station power plant

Wyoming state environmental regulators issued an emissions permit for the Dry Fork Station coal-fired power plant. Basin Electric Power Cooperative officials confirmed that construction of the $1.3-billion, 385 MW plant began once the state gave its approval. The issuance also prompted Basin Electric to withdraw its application for a $750 million federal loan. The plant is slated to be operational by 2011.
