As a part of the move to cleaner sources of energy, Bremo Power Station stopped burning coal to create electricity in 2014. Over the past few years we have been working with state and federal regulators to responsibly close coal ash ponds on the property. In 2018, we started the process of closing 2 ponds at Bremo where ash has already been or will be removed from the ponds. The ponds will be closed by 2019 in accordance with all applicable federal, state and local environmental regulations and necessary permits and once necessary permits are obtained. Groundwater monitoring and reporting will continue even after the ponds are closed
