Two meetings are being held in Fayette County this week to educate local landowners, community leaders and business representatives about the proposed FutureGen 2.0 project.
The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that the clean coal repowering program and carbon dioxide (CO2) storage network will bring 900 jobs to downstate Illinois and another 1,000 to suppliers across the state.
The first community assessment/informational meeting in Fayette County will be held at 6 p.m. on Thursday at the Phillips Building in St. Elmo.
