State to take up power plant project

The Connecticut Siting Council this month will again take up a developer’s motion for an application to build an energy plant in Dayville. The Siting Council will consider NTE’s re-filing motion on Feb. 14. Another key change since 2017 was the Killingly Town Council’s decision a year ago to approve tax stabilization and Community Environmental Benefit, or CEBA, agreements. The contracts stipulate that if controversial power plant is built — various environmental coalitions and state lawmakers have opposed the project — roughly $95 million in tax revenue and cash would flow into the town’s coffers.
