According to the Sierra Club, "On April 1, 2010, Bell County officials and representatives from Sky Energy - an independent power development company based out of Houston, Texas - met in Pineville to discuss plans for a 600-megawatt coal-fired power plant in Bell County, Kentucky. County officials have received $400,000 from multi-county coal severance funds for the project, which will go towards exploring "clean coal" technology and acquiring data required to apply for an air permit for the proposed plant."
The proposed project had not moved forward in over 12 months, and it was presumed cancelled.
