Harrison Power Station

FirstEnergy’s Harrison Power Station in Harrison County is part of the state's fleet of coal-fired plants facing an increasingly uncertain future with two laws accelerating the energy transition and a wide array of health and economic benefits projected to come from it per a new report.   

Researchers at a United States Department of Energy national laboratory have found that two landmark climate and sustainable energy laws enacted since 2021 could double the nation’s share of clean electricity by 2030.

A new report from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory estimates avoided sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide emissions under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and Inflation Reduction Act will prevent 4,200 to 18,000 premature deaths and $45 billion to $190 billion in health damages.
