08:04 EDTDUKDuke Energy to retire Asheville coal-fired power plant in four to five years
Duke Energy announced plans to retire its Asheville, N.C., coal-fired power plant in four to five years and modernize its generation and transmission system in western North Carolina and upstate South Carolina. The plan's major components include retiring the 376-megawatt Asheville coal power plant, investing approximately $750M to build a 650-megawatt natural gas-fired power plant, and installing solar generation at the site one of the first combinations of its kind. The plan includes investing approximately $320M to build a transmission substation near Campobello, S.C., and connect it to the Asheville power plant with a new approximately 40-mile, 230-kiloVolt transmission line. It also includes upgrading and rebuilding additional electrical infrastructure such as transmission lines and distribution substations. Carbon dioxide emissions will be reduced by about 60 percent, on a per-megawatt hour basis, due to the efficiency of the new gas plant and the fact that natural gas burns more cleanly than coal. The new gas plant also will help reduce carbon dioxide emissions across Duke Energy's Carolinas power plant fleet. Closing the Asheville coal plant and building a gas plant will make it unnecessary to invest in 126 megawatts of oil-fired generation units, to meet peak demand, and other capital investments that were planned for 2019. The power plant and electric transmission projects will create a peak construction workforce of about 800 jobs in the 2017-2019 timeframe, and generate significant local property tax revenues when brought in-service. Based on current Buncombe County tax rates, property taxes from the gas power plant are estimated to increase between 35 and 40 percent after the site is modernized.
