WARWICK — The application process for a controversial fossil fuel-burning power plant in Burrillville will continue after state regulators refuted arguments that developer Invenergy has failed to provide necessary information about the project’s buildings and a backup supply of water.

The Energy Facility Siting Board on Friday rejected claims by the Town of Burrillville that the filings for the $1-billion power plant are incomplete, unanimously voting against one motion to dismiss the application because of purportedly scant details on the project’s structures and a second motion to stay the proceedings until a court case challenging Invenergy’s water agreement is decided.
