City-County Council Removes IPL Coal Burning Resolution

The Indianapolis City-County Council removed Monday a resolution urging Indianapolis Power and Light to stop burning coal at its Harding Street plant by 2020.

This comes after IPL announced it will seek approval from the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission to convert the last of its coal-burning units to natural gas.  IPL already has approval to convert two other units from coal to natural gas.

If approved, IPL will phase out coal burning by 2016.

City-County Councilor At-Large Zach Adamson requested the council strike the resolution which it did.  Now, Adamson says he will introduce a new resolution at the next council meeting thanking IPL for its decision and recognizing the Power Indy Forward organization which worked to encourage IPL to phase out the burning of coal.
