Benton PUD to Sell Plant

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.- Benton County PUD is putting a local power plant on the sale block.

The PUD says they are trying to get rid of the Combustion Turbine Plant in Finley.

The plant was built in 2001 for the energy crisis, but has hardly run since then.

They say it's often cheaper to buy power off the market than run the plant.

No word yet on a buyer.
