Evaluation of Coal Combustion Residuals and Effluent Limitation Guideline Costs in West Virginia and Kentucky

Client:

Synapse evaluated the installation of coal combustion residuals and effluent limitation guideline costs at existing coal plants in dockets before the Public Utilities Commissions in three power plants: the Amos and Mountaineer plants in West Virginia, owned by Appalachian Power Company (APC); and the Mitchell plant in West Virginia, co-owned by Kentucky Power (KPC) and Wheeling Power (WPC). Synapse updated the companies' renewable pricing and found that a scenario in which effluent limitation guideline investments were foregone and the plants were retired in 2028 was more economic than a scenario in which the plants continued operating until 2040.
