E&E’s Katherine Ling reports a 60-year-old power plant in South Carolina consistently ranks among the most efficient in the country despite its age. But the facility will likely close down under the EPA’s carbon emissions proposal.
“Understanding what makes McMeekin’s coal units so efficient — and also why they will be shuttered in four years despite their performance — is important for states and utilities considering how to meet U.S. EPA’s proposed carbon emission regulations for existing power plants released in June,” Ling explains.
