E-M:/ Michigan's 5 proposed Coal Plants



Deb and Enviro-Michers generally:

 

With all the emphasis on energy legislation here in Lansing and the advertising by the utilities and other pro-coal folks on that, there has been less than adequate discussion of the 5 coal plant proposals currently before the Michigan DEQ for air quality “permits to install”.  Actually, with the Northern Michigan University permit issued last week, 4 remain.

 

Here is an overview and a way to find the information submitted by the applicants to DEQ (the DEQ’s own correspondence to the applicants is not available except through FOIA).  DEQ has a page devoted to the coal fired power plants at http://www.deq.state.mi.us/aps/downloads/permits/cfpp/cfpp.htm (note: the links don’t all seem to work below so you may have to cut and paste):
