New York power plants on track to be coal free by 2020: Cuomo

New York’s effort to go coal free at all of the state’s power plants by 2020 appears to be on track, Governor Cuomo said Thursday.

The final stages to phase out the last two coal power plants were adopted by the state’s Department of Environmental Conservation, the governor’s office said.

Cuomo first announced the plan in 2016, which would allow the final two plants to stay open if they adopt an emissions capture technology or switch natural gas.

The final two power plants are owned by Beowulf Energy, which said it has submitted a plan to the state to transform the sites into renewable energy power plants.
