Evidentiary hearings to be held on proposed power plant

Evidentiary hearings will be held in Rhode Island this week on a proposed gas-fired power plant in the town of Burrillville.

the first round of hearings are set to run Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday before the state Public Utilities Commission in Warwick.

The hearings will focus on whether the regional electric grid needs the 900-megawatt plant in the town's village of Pascoag. Expert witnesses will testify and lawyers for the involved parties will cross-examine them.

Chicago-based Invenergy LLC put forward the $700 million project and has argued that the facility will reduce electric rates in the state. Environmental groups say Invenergy is overestimating the benefits.
