Former Tenaska Site Under Contention for $1.2 Billion Project Near Taylorville

The former Tenaska site northeast of Taylorville, is one of the sites being considered by EmberClear, to build a one-point-2 billion dollar plant to turn natural gas to liquid fuel power.  That is one of the projects Christian County Economic Development Corporation executive director Mary Renner shared with her board during their quarterly meeting on Friday at Charro Mexican Restaurant in Taylorville.

Renner told Regional Radio News that EmberClear is an energy company.

Renner said they're negotiating with the City of Taylorville for a preliminary agreement.

And, Renner added there will be several versions of the agreement before it's nailed down.

Discussions between the various entities are continuing to keep Christian County in contention for the project.
