Coal Plant Expansion Cancelled

I was happy to see the headline that NRG Energy cancelled its proposed 657 megawatt expansion to the Big Cajun II coal plant in New Roads, LA.  Upon reading the article, I was somewhat disappointed that the reason was an inability to sell power contracts and not the recognition that natural gas is a superior fuel source.  Unfortunately, the market did not prevent Cleco Power from expanding its Rodemacher 3 coal and petroleum coke unit north of Alexandria.
