Recently, the owner of the plant said it would shut down. Woo hoo!
They said, according to Mass High Tech:
We have announced that our two coal plants will shut down in the future when environmental rules are clear. The first is Salem Harbor in the Northeast
In other words … never?
Cap and trade would be nice. Carbon tax would be nifty. Acknowledgement that industry wants legislative leadership and is hamstrung without it would be (in the words of our local weather forecaster) ducky!
