Big Rivers Electric Corp. says plans to shut down a western Kentucky power plant have been delayed.
Big Rivers spokesman Marty Littrel said Thursday that the hope is another deal will be struck that extends the life of the power plant even more.
The action was planned in the wake of Big Rivers' two largest customers leaving after the entities couldn't come to terms on electric rates.
The company still plans to idle another power plant in Hawesville on June 1.
