The Power Siting Board could be the deal breaker for the AK/SunCoke deal. The city of Monroe Officials have filed a motion to have the Power Sitting Board certify the 50+Megawatt generator at the SunCoke Plant.
 
The Ohio Power Siting Board's mission is to support sound energy policies that provide for the installation of energy capacity and transmission infrastructure for the benefit of the Ohio citizens, promoting the state's economic interests, and protecting the environment and land use.
 
Monroe officials feel that the plant will exceed current environmental impact limits required of new power generating plants in Ohio.
 
In 2 days, representatives from Monroe as well as Mr. Schiavone will be meeting Ohio Power Sitting Board Administrative Law Judge Scott Farkas, to set the ground rules for proceeding with hearings.

I guess they met yesterday. Only the attorney for Monroe got his words on record. Nothing really happened with Ohio Power Sitting Board Administrative Law Judge Scott Farkas and Attorney Frank Schiavone.
