BURRILLVILLE, R.I. (AP) - A company seeking to build a gas-fired power plant in the Rhode Island town of Burrillville has been ordered to provide more information before a review of the proposal can move forward.

The Rhode Island Energy Facility Siting Board voted Monday to issue an order to Chicago-based Invenergy that requires them to explain why the proceedings shouldn’t be suspended.

Board spokesman Todd Bianco tells WPRI-TV that Invenergy failed to provide a cooling water source for the facility after the Pascoag Utility District took the proposed water supply off the table.

Invenergy will have to present its case before the board decides whether the $700 million project can move forward.

Burrillville is in Rhode Island’s rural northwestern corner.
