TransAlta Washington

Washington state lawmakers are expected to look over an agreement to close two coal boilers at a TransAlta Corp. power plant and phase out coal-fired power in the state.

Reuters reports that one coal boiler will be shut by the end of December 2020 and the other by the end of December 2025 under the proposed bill, which allows TransAlta to sell long-term coal-fired power contracts to help finance a transition to gas-fired generation.

The agreement requires TransAlta to install additional emissions control technology and to provide $30 million to a community investment fund for energy efficiency projects and $25 million for an energy technology transition fund to support innovative energy technologies and companies in the state.
