      Proposed Ben Hill Co. coal plant scrapped

      Clean air advocates and environmental groups say the cancellation of the Ben Hill County coal plant is a positive thing for Southwest Georgia's environment.

      The company Power4Georgians was in the planning stage to develop a new coal-fired power plant; however they've agreed to cancel their plans. The reason is said to be because of changing market conditions, legal challenges, and local opposition.
