Demonstration Peat Project Funded

Record #:
North Carolina electric cooperatives could be awarded federal funds for preliminary work on a demonstration peat-fired generating plant under legislation adopted recently by Congress. The legislation allocates funds for first-stage design and engineering on such a plant, which would be the first such facility in the United States. The proposed demonstration plant would provide vital information regarding the practical approaches to tapping this energy source and the environmental effects of harvesting and burning peat.
