If We Care About The Air So Much

Recommended Posts

Why doesn't someone do something about the way the Parish plant operates?

Yes, I understand how much electricity it churns out, but there has to be a better way.

I did a comparison a couple of years ago on the emission efficiency of power plants in Texas. The Parrish plant has one of the lowest emission amounts per megawatt of generating capacity in the state, other than the nuclear plants. It is far better than the East Texas Luminant plants like Big Brown and Monticello.

 

Plant GHG MW GHG/MW
Parish            16,583,228            3,565          4,652
Martin Lake            18,701,286            2,230          8,386
Monticello            13,880,166            1,880          7,383
Limestone            13,066,969            1,706          7,659
Sam Seymour            11,289,000            1,690          6,680
Welsh            11,103,023            1,674          6,633
Big Brown               9,468,521            1,150          8,233

Well I would certainly hope so considering the megawatts they produce. It's all relative I guess, but apparently the reports I hear about how bad they are emissions wise, do not look at the numbers they way you presented them here. Your glass is half full, their glass is half empty.
