A new owner has bought a large chunk of the former State Line Energy plant property in Hammond, including the historic Art Deco generating station where workers burned coal to produce electricity for more than eight decades.
Dominion Energy has agreed to pay a $3.4 million civil penalty and spend about $9.8 million on environmental mitigation projects to resolve Clean Air Act violations in three locations, including its former State Line Energy plant in Hammond.
HAMMOND | A Texas-based company specializing in demolishing power plants has bought State Line Energy.
HAMMOND | State Line Energy has exhausted its coal supply, a company spokesman confirmed Monday.
HAMMOND | The expected shutdown of the State Line Energy plant has been moved up to March, according to owner Dominion Resources Inc.
Dominion officials had pegged the closing of the plant closer to the end of 2012, but new environmental regulations going into effect Jan. 1 will make it even less cost-effective to continue to run the plant, the company says.
The State Line Energy power plant will shut down at the end of next year rather than be retrofitted with pollution control equipment.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Wednesday announced a proposal to regulate emissions from coal-fired power plants, including rules limiting mercury, lead, arsenic and acid gas pollution.
The parent company of State Line Energy LLC said the Hammond power plant could shut down in about four years -- if certain tighter state and federal environmental regulations are finalized.
