What you need to know about coal and the Homer City Generating Station

The Homer City Generating Station is located outside Pittsburgh, PA, is one of the dirtiest coal plants in the country.1 The sulfur dioxide emitted by the plant causes respiratory health problems and acid rain.2 Homer City is also one of the country’s top emitters of global warming pollution.

According to the Clean Air Task force, pollution from Homer City causes 43 premature deaths every year. That’s more than one person a week who dies because of pollution from this plant. The plant is owned by California-based Edison International, who is currently facing a joint lawsuit from the Federal government and Attorneys General in Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey for violations of the Clean Air Act.3 New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman criticized Edison for its negligence at Homer City, saying, "The owners of this power plant have repeatedly thumbed their noses at clean-air laws.”2

Pennsylvanians deserve better. It’s time for Edison International to close the Homer City coal plant and protect local residents from deadly air pollution. Click here to find out more about this plant...
