Energy News Network: This Ohio River city was founded as a frontier, wood-burning port at the start of the 19th century. It powered its 20th-century manufacturing sector with coal. In the 21st, Owensboro is crossing its newest energy threshold.
Sometime in the summer of 2019, the city-owned Owensboro Municipal Utilities will close the first of two coal-fired generating units at its 55-year-old Elmer Smith Station. In early 2020, OMU will shut the second unit at the 400-megawatt plant, ending 120 years of supplying the city’s electricity fueled solely by fossil fuel.
