TXU Morgan Creek 7, Texas

STATUS: Canceled

TYPE: Coal

OPPOSITION: Sierra Club, Environmental Defense Fund, Natural Resource Defense Council


BACKGROUND:  In April 2006, the developer announced it intended to construct an 800 megawatt coal unit known as Morgan Creek 7 at its facility in Mitchell County, Texas.  This project was cancelled in February 2007 as part of an agreement between the developer’s new owner and environmental groups who opposed construction. In return, the environmentalists agreed to drop legal challenges against three other Texas coal plants, among other things.
