NRG Draws Kudos, Criticism for Plans to Repower Coal Plants With Natural Gas,
an Industrial Info News Alert
SUGAR LAND, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 08/13/13 -- Written by John Egan
for Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- NRG Energy
Incorporated (NYSE:NRG) (Princeton, New Jersey) is being praised by
elected officials in Pennsylvania and Ohio for its decision to
repower more than 1,000 megawatts (MW) of coal-fired generation in
those states that had been slated for closure by their previous
owner. But the company is drawing a more mixed response in upstate
New York, where its plan to repower an aging coal plant is being
opposed by an unusual collection of environmental organizations,
business interests and a distribution company with a lot to lose if
that repowering goes forward.
