Georgia Power phases out 15 coal plants


January 15, 2013
ATLANTA Georgia Power announced plans to phase out 15 aging coal and oil-burning units at Plant Branch, Plant Yates and Plant Kraft as the utility prepares to begin its multi-year planning process at the Georgia Public Service Commission later this month.

"Georgia families will be breathing easier now that some of the state's oldest and largest polluters will be phased out," said Seth Gunning, Beyond Coal organizer with the Georgia Sierra Club.

Georgia Power's analysis showed that the Branch, Kraft and Yates coal plants are too expensive to operate in comparison to solar and geothermal power.
