Fully credit existing efforts that reduce CO2 emissions

  • The company has taken actions that reduce CO2 emissions and believes utilities should be fully credited for existing efforts.
  • The company is fully rehabilitating all eight generating units at the Ohio Falls hydroelectric plant that will increase total output by 27 percent. Ohio Falls and Dix Dam hydro plants will have the ability to produce up to 120 megawatts.
  • The investments we’ve completed at our power plants to further reduce emissions, coupled with our new Cane Run 7 unit, will also help us meet carbon reduction requirements under the Clean Power Plan or any new rule that may replace it. 
  • We’re actively evaluating potential technologies and supporting research projects to propel the availability of carbon-capture technology, commercial-scale battery storage, renewables and more efficient coal-burning methods.
