Mesaba Order out IN WRITING

August 30th, 2007


IGCC on the ropes… or has it been revived?  Hard to tell.

The PUC’s Order is finally out.  It’s the Order, from the August 2, 2007 decision, where the PUC decided it would be “disapproving Power Purchase Agreement” for the Excelsior Energy Mesaba Project.  And that’s very good, but what’s scary about it is written right there in the caption, the part about “resolving to explore the potential for a statewide market for project power under Minn. Stat. 216B.1694, Subd. 5.

So time to fire up another cup of coffee and read this thing.  I’ll probably have nightmares tonight…
