A hearing to address bail for Green Power's owner has been delayed to Monday.
Michael Spitzauer is in federal custody in Yakima on charges he defrauded investors in his controversial biofuels plant in Pasco.
He pleaded innocent earlier this week in U.S. District Court to 10 counts of wire fraud, six counts of money laundering and two counts of aggravated identity theft.
A bail hearing was set for Friday. He lives in Kennewick and reportedly is considered a flight risk.

A court official said the hearing now is set before Magistrate Judge John T. Rodgers in Spokane, with Spitzauer to appear via video from Yakima.
Federal prosecutors allege Spitzauer defrauded investors of at least $6.7 million and used the money to buy a $1 million home, repay previous investors and cover personal expenses, private school tuition, professional sports tickets and legal fees.
The plant he was building at the Port of Pasco was closed in 2009 because he lacked the necessary air quality permits.
