Future of Futuregen 2.0


Futuregen Future – The future of the Futuregen 2.0 project could hinge on a big decision in the coming weeks.


The Futuregen Alliance said a ruling by the Illinois Commerce Commission in late December could determine the 1.6 billion dollar project's fate.


The ICC will rule on a plan requiring utility companies like Ameren and Com-Ed to buy electricity produced by the converted power plant in Meredosia.  That ruling could determine whether the Federal Energy Department will continue to back the project.


The Futuregen Alliance will not comment on the project's future if the state or federal rulings go against it.
