"What this means is that it's clearly much cheaper to clear the air by investing in alternative energy," Kanfer said of the Mountaineer decision. "It's just way too expensive to make coal cleaner."
Some common sense thought I would argue that they can use some 'cleaner' coal (IGCC and 60% thermal efficiency gas turbines) to provide a large part of the baseload by replacing older wasteful plants built in the 1960's.
