Sierra Club tries to block coal-fired plant near Louisville

The Sierra Club is trying to stop Louisville Gas & Electric’s proposed addition to a coal-fired generating plant at the Trimble County Generation station near Louisville by blocking the company’s permit from the state Division of Water.

A hearing on the permit will take place at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 5, at the Morgan Community Center, 147 Victory Ave, Bedford, KY . That’s the same day as a day-long forum on coal at the University of Kentucky in Lexington.
