Possum Point

A cleaner energy future

56 employees work to provide safe and reliable electricity 24/7 to tens of thousands of homes and businesses.

As a part of the move to cleaner sources of energy, Possum Point Power Station stopped burning coal to create electricity in 2003. 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 4 ponds at Possum Point Power Station where ash has already been or will be removed from the ponds.  The ponds will be closed by the end of 2019 in accordance with all applicable federal, state and local environmental regulations and once necessary permits are obtained. Groundwater monitoring and reporting will continue even after the ponds are closed.
