Most power stations which are considered the dirtiest coal-fired power plants, are set to close down in March this year. This major undertaking and moving away from fossil fuel power and toward more renewable energy options are currently being met with mixed reactions by different sectors of society. There are benefits of portable solar station and repercussions that would impact the certain area as a whole, but at the same time, the effects of the transition will also be immediately felt by the communities which have been primary players in supplying energy requirements for the longest time.
Know how these power stations and coal mines affect your surroundings and why closure is necessary. When these power stations and coal mines are closed the carbon emissions will decrease. The power plant is one of the oldest coal-fired power plants in the country as well as one of the most emissions-intensive ones. It burns more carbon-intensive brown coal, and as such has been producing what is equivalent to 1,400 tonnes of carbon dioxide per gig watt hour of energy produced. And once the plant's operations cease, there would be a direct impact on carbon emissions.
