Uncertainty Remains for Midwest Coal Communities

10.13.17 | In the News

An article published in Midwest Energy News discusses how Dayton Power and Light (DP&L) plans to close its two coal-fired plants in Adams County, Ohio next June.

Last month, the Trump administration announced a proposal that would allow operators to recover their costs and keep some coal-fired plants operating. Local Adams County officials subsequently reached out to the Trump administration requesting potential recovery efforts.

The piece cites Delta Institute’s coal stories report, which includes mention of Adam County and describes how difficult it is for coal-dependent communities to develop other economic sectors.

Economic and environmental uncertainty persist for Adams County as DP&L moves forward with plant closures and reclamation efforts.
