OUR POWER PLANT CLUSTER: ONE OF THE WORST!-
If the recently approved power plants are all built, the Brandywine area will host more fossil fuel power plant capacity than 99.9% of all places in the U.S. Looking just at the communities with existing fossil fuel power plants, the proposed Brandywine area power plant cluster would be worse than 98% of such communities.
