A 'green' peek at America's largest coal plant
TV show 'Designing Spaces' looks at Prairie State Energy Campus, one of the most efficient and low emissions producing coal-fueled power plants in the US.
Clean coal technology is constantly evolving. We’re continually making use of this natural resource more efficient. I recently had the opportunity to tour the Prairie State Energy Campus for Designing Spaces: Think Green.
The episode is centered around the latest technologies and developments the coal-based electricity industry has been using to make this plant one of the most efficient and low emissions producing coal-fueled power plants in the nation.
Prairie State Energy Campus is the largest coal-fueled power plant today. It produces more than 7 million tons of coal a year, with the plant’s first unit currently producing 800 megawatts of power.
