White Oak Solar Energy says dust from construction and emissions from the natural gas plant will cut their output.

Houston-based Calpine Corp. has proposed building the natural gas plant. Both companies have lease agreements with the city for adjacent lots in the 400-acre Garrison Oak Technical Park.
