East Kentucky Power plan to upgrade unit gets OK
Question of the Day
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A plan to let a coal-burning unit at the East Kentucky Power Cooperative J.S. Cooper Generating Station in south-central Kentucky has won approval from the state Public Service Commission.
The agency said the project is “relatively inexpensive” at $15 million and the least costly of options the co-op examined.
The agency also approved a plan to recover the cost through the co-op’s environmental surcharge, passing on the cost to customers of the 16 electric distribution cooperatives that buy power from East Kentucky.
The project at the plant near Burnside will add ductwork to redirect emissions from the 116-megawatt Unit 1 to emission control equipment already in place to handle emissions from the 225-megawatt Unit 2. The project will bring Unit 1 into compliance with stricter federal air quality standards.
