HANDY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A company is considering a Michigan site for a natural gas-fueled power plant that could cost as much as $1 billion to build.

The Livingston Daily Press & Argus of Howell reports Silver Spring, Maryland-based power producer Competitive Power Ventures is considering a 145-acre (59-hectare) site in Livingston County’s Handy Township, about 55 miles (88 kilometers) northwest of Detroit.

Company Director John Hafner says the power could be sold to other energy providers and utilities. He says the company is optimistic that it has selected a good site for the project, but officials likely will take about two years before deciding whether to proceed.

Public hearings are planned, including one Thursday. The land neighbors two natural gas pipelines and a high-voltage electrical transmission power line corridor.
