NRG Draws Kudos, Criticism for Plans to Repower Coal Plants With Natural Gas, an Industrial Info News Alert

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwired - Aug 13, 2013) - Written by John Egan for Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- NRG Energy Incorporated (NYSE:NRG) (Princeton, New Jersey) is being praised by elected officials in Pennsylvania and Ohio for its decision to repower more than 1,000 megawatts (MW) of coal-fired generation in those states that had been slated for closure by their previous owner. But the company is drawing a more mixed response in upstate New York, where its plan to repower an aging coal plant is being opposed by an unusual collection of environmental organizations, business interests and a distribution company with a lot to lose if that repowering goes forward.
