Sierra Club appeals Holcomb 2 coal plant

The soap opera of the permit process for the proposed Holcomb 2 power plant continues. The Sierra Club is suing the Kansas Department of Health and Environment for approving Sunflower Electric Corp.’s permit request to build a 895-megawatt coal-fired power plant near the town of Holcomb.

The plant shouldn’t be built as planned, the group says, because the permit straight-up doesn’t require the plant to be as environmentally conscious as it should be.
