Dirtiest Power Plants Named!

July 27th was a dirty day for Big Coal in North Carolina. The Environmental Integrity Project’s report ranked North Carolina among the “dirtiest dozen” states for air pollution from coal-fired power plants and pinned three plants in North Carolina as among the fifty worst carbon dioxide emitters. Of the nation’s 378 large-scale coal-fired power plants, two of Duke Energy’s North Carolina plants made the top fifty list.
