ODEC just doesn't get it. The local residents don't want this polluting, slobbering nightmare monstrosity that is being built in the middle of a small town not to satisfy a real need, but so they can turn a profit selling power to Northern Va. If they need power let them build a power plant up there. The local CO-OP customers will be paying for this nightmare fore generations because it won't be free. No fuel adjustment clause you just get to pay part of the $6 billion dollars to build it. Then you will pay for it in human healthcare costs as long as it runs. Why didn't jack reasoner and the rest of the ODEC board opt to build it in their neighborhood. Drive out to the former town of Clover and drive thru where downtown used to be and see what an ODEC power plant did to that town. Follow the money and see who really profited. Better still go to the website follow the money and see which Va. Politicians ODEC donated money to.

As one of those northern VA residents you mention, I agree with the fight against the new power plant and hope that the folks in Surrey County succeed. Human health issues with such a plant are significant (see http://www.greenmomster.org/2012/01/we-are-10.html). Why isn't ODEC looking to the future and considering renewables?
