CPV Valley Energy Center took Gov. Corruptocrat to court and quickly beat him and his band of New York State DEC political. The power plant is starting up!
MDN brought you the exciting news that last week a New York “Supreme Court” judge (Supreme Court in NY is a lower court, one step up from county court) overruled a last-minute dirty trick by the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to block a Marcellus-fired electric plant from starting operations. Now, there is more good news!
Competitive Power Ventures (CPV) built and is days away from starting up the Valley Energy Center, a $900 million, 680-megawatt natural gas-fired electric generating plant in Orange County, New York.
In a last minute, desperate attempt to block the plant (to boost his gubernatorial reelection campaign and advance his future Presidential ambitions), Gov. Andrew Cuomo directed his DEC to deny renewal of an air permit previously granted by the DEC.
