The Great Lakes are a national treasure, and economically support a $7 billion fishing industry, $16 billion boating industry, and 1.5 million jobs. The introduction of Asian carp and other species puts the well-being of our communities, wildlife, and waters at risk.
POWER PLANT IN OHIO TO RETIRE, NOT REFUEL WITH NATURAL GAS
July 16th, 2013
In case you missed it, here are the nitty-gritty details from the agreement: AEP reached an agreement with other parties to modify its 2007 decree that addresses air pollution under the federal Clean Air Act — what’s called a New Source Review decree — which gave AEP the option to retire the Muskingum River’s fifth unit or refuel it with natural gas.
As the utility companies retire their coal units, it is critical that they we take care of working families, as well as build a greener economy with new clean energy jobs. Across the nation, Americans are finding jobs in the clean energy industry, developing new technology, installing solar panels on rooftops, maintaining wind turbines, and more. We’re glad that AEP’s decision will help create a healthier, safer, and more sustainable planet.
