Cross Generating Station Unit 3

From Global Energy Monitor

State-owned Santee Cooper (South Carolina Public Service Authority) is constructing two new electric generating units at the Cross Generating Station. These two new units will provide 1200 megawatts (MW) of energy, adding to the station’s existing capacity of 1160 MW. The third unit became operational in January 2007.[1]

In May 2003, the state Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) ruled that Santee Cooper had begun constructing Cross 3 illegally, without waiting for DHEC to approve air permits. In March 2004, Santee Cooper agreed to pay $2 million in penalties and install $100 million in pollution-control devices.[2]

Coal supply

In a 2007 media release CONSOL Energy announced that it had reached an agreement with Santee Cooper "to supply approximately 6.5 million tons for the 2007-2011 timeframe. The coal is expected to be shipped from CONSOL Energy's Bailey Mine to Santee Cooper's new Cross #3 and Cross #4 units that are based in South Carolina South Carolina."[3]
