The Orlando Utilities Commission and the Southern Co. scrapped plans on a 285 MW clean coal plant that would have incorporated IGCC and capture technology. They broke ground on the project in September and will instead be building a natural gas-fired power plant. Orlando Utilities CEO Ken Ksionek said, "In light of the changing federal and state regulatory landscape regarding emissions, the IGCC project is no longer as economically viable for OUC as it was when we first entered the project." While the plant was set to be built with capture technology, there was no plan to immediately sequester CO2 emissions due to cost factors. The $560 million plant was to be online in 2010. The Southern Co. is still committed to an IGCC plant in Mississippi.
