COAL PLANTS-MICH
(2007-10-11)
(wgvu) - - ENVIRONMENTAL GROUPS HAVE URGED STATE
OFFICIALS TO BEGIN REGULATING CARBON DIOXIDE EMISSIONS FROM
COAL-BURNING POWER PLANTS BEFORE ALLOWING ANY NEW FACILITIES IN
MICHIGAN.
DISCUSSIONS ABOUT AT LEAST SIX NEW, EXPANDED OR REPLACEMENT
COAL-BURNING ELECTRICAL POWER PLANTS ARE IN VARIOUS STAGES ACROSS
THE STATE.
MANY UTILITIES AND UTILITY REGULATORS BELIEVE MICHIGAN WILL NEED
AT LEAST ONE NEW POWER PLANT WITHIN THE NEXT 8 YEARS OR SO.
THE MICHIGAN DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY IS WAITING FOR
SOME DIRECTION FROM THE FEDERAL ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY
BEFORE DECIDING WHETHER TO PROCEED WITH CARBON DIOXIDE RULES.
