Locke Lord Obtains Reversal of TCEQ Order Denying Property Tax Exemption to Freestone ‎Power Generation, Freeport Energy Center and Brazos Valley Energy

Appellate Partner Susan Kidwell, Environmental Partner Elizabeth Mack, and Tax Partner Geoff Polma represented Freestone ‎Power Generation LLC, Freeport Energy Center LLC and Brazos Valley Energy LLC before a Texas ‎appellate court that reversed an order of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) denying a pollution control property tax exemption for heat ‎recovery steam generators (HRSGs), which are used in electrical generating plants. The appellate decision, in favor of Locke Lord’s clients, established that HRSGs are pollution control equipment and are entitled to at least a partial property tax exemption.
