What you need to know about coal and the Crystal River Energy Complex

The Crystal River Generating Station is a terrifying mixture of dirty and dangerous energy sources: a huge coal plant attached to a nuclear power plant in disrepair that’s been offline since 20091. It is situated along the beautiful Crystal River, which is the second largest aquifer in Florida, and home to a vibrant manatee population2. Pollution from the Crystal River plant kills one person every five days.

Progress Florida, the company that operates the plant, says that it will shut down half of its coal operations contingent upon new nuclear plants being built3. After the disaster in Japan, more dangerous nuclear is no solution to our energy needs. Shutting this plant down is the first step towards building a clean and safe energy future for Florida.
