Background on Plant
Jinglong Fengzhen power station is a two-unit coal-fired power plant with a total capacity of 1,200 MW. The plant was completed in 2007, and is owned by Beijing Energy Investment Holding.
Due to complaints from farmers that the plant was ruining their crops and toxins were leaching into groundwater, Hou Shier Quan residents near the plant were able to convince the local government to negotiate increased reparations from the company that owns the power plant: an additional 50 yuan per year for each farmer (roughly $7, or the cost of an average meal in Beijing).
