One way we’re working to reduce emissions and improve air quality is by installing new technology at our power plants. Over the last several years we have installed:
- ‘Low-NOx’ combustion systems which prevent the creation of nitrogen oxides at all of our generating units except for Tufts Cove and Trenton Generating Station unit 5.
- A ‘baghouse’ at our Trenton Generating Station, unit 5. This technology basically acts as a large particulate matter filter for the plant’s emissions.
- Activated carbon capture systems for mercury control.
We’re also working to reduce our emissions by improving our infrastructure overall. Learn more about the new ways we’re generating electricity, including wind, biomass, hydro and making use of more cleaner burning natural gas in the How We Make Electricity Section
