Proposed Little Gypsy Coal-Fired Power Plant

Client:

Synapse evaluated the economics of a proposed coal plant in Louisiana.  Synapse found that Energy Louisiana had not prudently considered the potential for further increases in the cost of building the plant or the costs of likely federal regulation of greenhouse gas emissions.  The Louisiana Public Service Commission approved the plant; however, Sierra Club sought judicial review of that decision.
