East Baton Rouge Parish, La (NBC33) — Louisiana Generating has scrapped plans for a proposed coal plant near Baton Rouge.
The company withdrew all permit and construction applications earlier today.
The move comes after concerns about the cost of coal energy versus natural gas.
The plant was first announced back in 2007.
