Elmwood Energy Center

From Global Energy Monitor

Elmwood Energy Center is a proposed coal plant near Chicago, in Elmwood, Illinois.[1]

In 2003, the Illinois EPA issued a draft permit to Indeck Energy Services to build a 660 MW coal plant near Chicago in Elwood, Illinois. The proposed location was in the greater Chicago area (50 miles south of the Chicago Loop) and adjacent to Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie, the nation’s first prairie preserve. Working together with the City of Chicago and the Chicago branch of the ALA, the Sierra Club filed a lawsuit against Indeck. In September 2006, the U.S. EPA’s Environmental Appeals Board overturned the air permit, finding that it lacked emissions control requirements and environmental impact assessments. [2] Subsequently, Indeck declined to renew the option for the property the company intended to use for the plant, indicating that it did not intend to pursue the project further.[2]
