TOPEKA — Gov. Mark Parkinson has agreed to a deal that would allow one new coal-fired power plant at Holcomb in western Kansas. Under the terms of Monday’s deal, the Hays-based Sunflower Electric Power Corporation would be allowed to build one 895-megawatt coal plant using the latest air-pollution equipment. Originally, Sunflower had sought to build two 700-megawatt plants. One-fourth of the power from the new plant would be used in Kansas with the rest going to Texas and Colorado utilities. Parkinson said the deal would have to be ratified by legislators first.
