Dominion offers to switch Fluvanna plant to natural gas

Dominion is attempting to do a bit of a pollution swap as part of promoting their Wise County coal-fired power plant licensing request. Check out the article published in today's (Feb. 5) Daily Progress. Dominion's plan it to switch the Bremo Bluff plant (not very far from Charlottesville) from coal to gas and make the plant a peak-load generation plant if they can get the Wise County coal plant approved and built to provide base-load generation. My hunch is that there will be 'winners' and 'losers' if this happens, but the global environment appears to fall into the losers category due. Check out the news story online.
