KY Power is making plans to replace a generator
Kentucky Power is looking for a plan to replace how electricity is generated in the unit 1 generator at the Big Sandy Power Plant near Louisa.
The generator currently burns coal for electricity and produces 278 megawatts of power in the Big Sandy region. Kentucky Power is looking for the most cost- effective replacement for unit 1 and is evaluating purchasing up to 250 megawatts of power from other sources.
Unit 1 is scheduled for retirement in 2015.
