Hoku Plant to Stay Powered


(POCATELLO) – The lights will stay on at Hoku’s polysilicon plant in Pocatello. Idaho Power had threatened to cut off electricity to the facility after Hoku failed to make a $1.9 million payment in November. Company officials say Hoku was going through cash flow problems and couldn’t afford to pay their power bill. The Idaho Public Utilities Commission set a schedule to hear out the dispute between both companies, but until the case is resolved, Idaho Power can’t pull the plug on Hoku. Meetings are set for next week.
