Alabama Power closing two coal units, blames federal regulations

Alabama Power Co. says federal regulations are forcing it to close two coal-fired units at its Walker County power plant and to cease using coal at others, according to a story from the Birmingham Business Journal.

The Birmingham-based utility said it will close two coal-fired units at Plant Gorgas in Walker County and work toward eliminating the use of coal in favor of natural gas at Plant Barry in Mobile County and Plant Greene County by 2016.

Its Plant Miller in Jefferson County will not be affected by the announcements.
