In less than forty eight hours, West Texans could be rolling the red carpet for a big announcement.

On Tuesday (12-18), we will know the final site for the FutureGen Alliance Power Plant.

Folks in Odessa are hoping their site at penwell will get the 1.8 billion dollar near-zero emission coal-burning plant.

Odessa is in the race with two other sites in Illinois, and another site in Texas.

Futuregen will make the announcement Tuesday morning from Washington, D.C, but those involved in bringing the project here will meet on campus at UT Permian Basin to listen online for the decision.
