But the city say it's still too early in the process to tell when exactly the plant would be built.

KOMU spoke with representatives from Aquila, the electricity company, said they won't be taking a vote on whether or not to build the center until mid-July.

Aquila held the first of four community outreach programs.

If the city approves the project, the plant would be built on the outskirts of Sedalia two years from now.

The area is already zoned for industrial use.

The company would buy 162-acres from the city and the proposed energy center would take up about 50-acres.

"I think it might give the community a boost in being able to attract other large industrial employers, which provides a wonderful base to the community from an employment standpoint," said Sedalia resident Ray Haley.

The company has two other facilities in Greenwood and South Harper.

According to Aquila, neither of these areas have had their property values affected.

However, if this $152-million plant is built, Aquila officials say electricity rates would increase .
