Kern needs HECA project

By The Bakersfield Californian

During the recent TV news coverage of permitting for the proposed HECA plant, a protester said that the plant is infringing on farmers, so they should build the plant somewhere else. I disagree.

Firstly, they are building it there because the oil is there. Secondly, the gasified coal that's burned to generate power is considered a clean source.

Kern County needs this huge project. It will pump millions into the local economy, create a lot of much-needed jobs and provide another electrical generating source that this state desperately needs.
