Healthy Air Act Spurs 2 Local Upgrades
As a result of the Healthy Air Act, passed during the last legislative session, Constellation Energy will be required to upgrade its Brandon Shores and H.A. Wagner power plants in Pasadena. The legislation requires coal-burning plants in the state to dramatically reduce nitrogen oxide, sulfur dioxide, carbon dioxide, and mercury emissions.
Constellation is aiming to have the multi-million dollar upgrades completed by 2010.
It's good to see the impacts of such progressive, environmental legislation as the Healthy Air Act and Flush Fee making an important difference in Anne Arundel County.
