BIG PERRY COUNTY COAL COMPANY DIDN'T GET THEIRS, HAHA!!!. You know, if the Louesa power plant did get Scrubbers and cause our Electric bills to go up 30%. That ain't going to help the Coal companies out arround here!. See, the plant can burn high Sulphur Coal then and still be in compliance. They will buy the cheaper high sulphur Coal from Western Kentucky thus leaving Eastern Coal companies high and dry!!!.

Solar power is the conversion of sunlight into electricity, either directly using photovoltaic, or indirectly using concentrated solar power.

Pay for it YOURSELF-and be advised-solar is FAR more expensive than any KW hour unit anyone's electric bill has EVER seen around here.
