Power station plan scrapped

AGL has scrapped plans for the controversial Leaf’s Gully gas-fired power station which was set to be built near Appin.

A company spokeswoman said the announcement was made as part of the release of AGL’s annual financial statement on August 28.

“The economic viability of this project has been under review for some time in light of the latest supply and demand outlook in the national electricity market,” she said.

“There is a large surplus of electricity supply in NSW and there is no requirement for additional capacity to be built in the short term.”

AGL proposed to build a 300-megawatt back-up power generator on a 280- hectare bushland site between Appin, Menangle and Rosemeadow in 2009.

It stirred strong community protests and all three local councils opposed the plant, concerned it would emit carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxides into the region’s air and endanger koala habitats in the area.
