Title: Electric Utility Phase I Acid Rain Compliance Strategies for the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990

Abstract

The purpose of this report is to provide information on strategies electric utilities are using to comply with Phase I of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 and estimates of the costs of selected utilities for compliance. Compliance strategies are discussed including technological considerations and costs for the six main strategies: (1) fuel switching and/or blending; (2) obtaining additional allowances; (3) installing flue gas desulfurization equipment (scrubbers); (4) using previously implemented controls; (5) retiring facilities; and (6) boiler repowering. Impacts on coal demand and supply are also examined.
