We designed the Prairie State Energy Campus around a vision for a cleaner, brighter tomorrow. Prairie State uses state-of-the-art environmental controls and technology to ensure that we lead the coal industry in clean energy production. Our owners made a $1 billion investment in Best Available Control Technology (BACT) to create the cleanest coal-fueled power plant in Illinois—and one of the cleanest in the world.
And it’s not just our technology. When we built Prairie State, we constructed it across the road from the mouth of our coal mine. That doesn’t just save on transportation costs—it also dramatically reduces the emissions transportation would produce.
