The Rhode Island Energy Facility Siting Board has approved four parties, known as "intervenors," to participate in hearings for the proposal to build a power plant in Burrillville.
Those parties include the state’s Office of Energy Resources, National Grid, the Conservation Law Foundation and the Rhode Island Building and Construction Trades Council.
The EFSB is charged with overseeing the siting process for major energy facilities in the state.
The Burrillville Land Trust, some Burrillville residents and grassroots organizations also requested to be parties in the process. The board postponed making a decision on those until Jan. 29.
The board also denied the Conservation Law Foundation's request to close the docket.
