It appears Tom Micheletti, Excelsior Energy, is having another bad day.  The Air Permit for the Mesaba Energy Project was rejected by the MPCA as incomplete, modeling not approved, the list goes on and on…  Yes, that’s “our” Mesaba, the coal gasification power plant that can’t get a Power Purchase Agreement if its life depended on it, and yes, its life does depend on it.

MPCA Letter – Mesaba App Incomplete – Dec 30 2011

Air Quality – Criteria Pollutant Modeling – Checklist

Air Quality Dispersion Modeling – Not approved

Thank you, Air Quality at the MPCA,  for making my day!
