Saddled with Debt, UNC Unsure It Can Go Coal Free Soon

Record #:
The University of North Carolina is considered a regional leader on environmental issues but continues to burn thousands of tons of coal each year in its power plants. The university is in debt on its cogeneration power plant and will have to burn coal until at least 2022. Several groups have called for the university to end coal use in five years, but that will not be possible. The various ways UNC is examining to go carbon neutral by 2050 are explored.
