Greening The Grid
Renewable Power Resources Growing
More than 1,000 megawatts of wind generation were in operation by the end of 2008 and wind projects totaling over 8,000 megawatts had been proposed for grid connection.
Power Plant Emission Rates Declining
Power plant emission rates (tons/year) for Sulfur Dioxide (SO2), Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) dropped by double-digits between 1999 and 2008.
