Rogers City power plant nixed

TRAVERSE CITY — A coalition of Michigan electric utilities that includes Cherryland Electric Cooperative and Great Lakes Energy is pulling the plug on a coal-fired power plant.

Cadillac-based Wolverine Power Cooperative has abandoned its Rogers City plant, Cherryland Electric Cooperative General Manger Tony Anderson confirmed this morning.

Wolverine Power Cooperative spent more than $20 million on the plant, which members called the Clean Energy Venture, since plans to build it were announced in 2006.

Anderson declined further comment.
