 Company to settle coal-fired plant emissions violations for $7M

Interstate Power and Light, a subsidiary of Alliant Energy, agreed to install emissions controls and meet emissions reduction rates from seven coal-fired power plants in Iowa.
 
The settlement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Justice (DOJ) also requires Interstate Power and Light to spent $6 million on environmental mitigation projects, ranging from a solar power project to installing an anaerobic digester, or replacing coal-fired boilers at schools or starting an alternative fuel vehicle replacement program. The company must also pay a civil penalty of $1.1 million to resolve alleged violations of the Clean Air Act.
