A Texas newspaper reported Jan. 23 that an independent power producer has suspended plans for the proposed 1,300-MW Las Brisas generating station.
The Corpus Christi Caller reported that Houston based Chase Power Development LLC has suspended its efforts to seek alternative investors.
Chase Power officials could not immediately be reached by GenerationHub. The project had initially received an air permit from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality in early 2011.
Chase Power had characterized the plant, which was designed to burn solid fuel, as a $3.2bn development project.
Las Brisas was a key plaintiff in an early power industry challenge to greenhouse gas regulations on new power generation.
