COLUMBUS, OH (FOX19) -
A coalition of citizen groups,
states and U.S. EPA announced a landmark settlement agreement with American
Electric Power (AEP) requiring AEP to stop burning coal by 2015 at three power
plants in Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky.
AEP also agreed to replace a portion of
these coal plants with new wind and solar investments in Indiana and Michigan,
bringing more clean energy on line to meet the region's electricity needs.
AEP will stop burning coal at the Tanners Creek
Generating Station Unit 4 near Lawrenceburg in Indiana, the Muskingum River Power Plant Unit 5 in
Ohio, and the Big Sandy Power Plant Unit 2 in Kentucky.
Collectively, a total
of 2,011 megawatts (MW) of coal-fired power will retire as part of the
settlement, removing almost 12 million tons of climate-disrupting carbon
pollution and nearly 84,000 tons of sulfur dioxide pollution that the three
coal-fired power plants spew into the air each year.
"Today's agreement will protect public health, reduce the
threat of climate disruption, and create a cleaner environment for families in
Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky," said Jodi Perras, Indiana Campaign Representative
for the Sierra Club's Beyond Coal campaign. "Across the country, the coal
industry faces unprecedented setbacks as its share of electricity generation
plummets and the cost of coal continues to skyrocket. This agreement is only
the latest sign of progress as our country continues to transition away from
dirty, dangerous, and expensive coal-fired power plants."
