As TVA continues to commission the scrubbers, part of the commissioning is to see how different blends of coal work with the new scrubbers in reducing Sulfur Dioxide emissions. Beginning August 14, the Kingston Fossil Plant will begin test burns with different types of coal. These test burns will only be performed on one unit at a time, though we will have multiple units in service.
The public will not see anything different, but we want to make sure we keep our commitment to let you know about any coal test burns we plan to do. During the test burns, the units will be continuously monitored, both inside and outside. The State has been notified about the testing.
Please contact Katie Kline or me (717-1645, or cell, 806-7688) should you have any questions.
