England coal fired generating station in Marmora. Owned and operated by Pepco Holdings. On August 17, 2006, Pepco announced that its subsidiary Atlantic City Electric Company reached an agreement to sell the facility to RC Cape May Holdings, LLC, an affiliate of Rockland Capital Energy Investments, LLC for $12.2 million.In June 2012 RC Cape May Holdings LLC said it will shut down one coal-fired unit at the B.L. England power plant and retrofit a second coal-fired unit to a natural gas turbine and will re-fuel a third, oil-burning unit with natural gas. The agreement resolves violations of the Clean Air Act that occurred when the plant was under the ownership of Atlantic Electric, Conectiv, and Pepco Holdings Co. The previous owners did not make pollution-control upgrades as required by the federal Clean Air Act when they made significant upgrades to operational features of the plant.The agreement calls for the cessation of operation of coal-fired Unit 1 by fall 2013; until that occurs, the company must take steps to minimize emissions from this unit. Unit 2, which currently burns coal, and Unit 3, which burns fuel oil and only operates during peak demand periods, are to be converted to natural gas by May 2016. Unit 2 is to be shut down by May 2015 to allow for the conversion.Locations:New Jersey-North America-United States of AmericaDate:30 Oct, 2012Credit:© Greenpeace / Tim AubryMaximum size:5379px X 3586pxKeywords:Aerial view-Bridges-Chimneys-Climate (campaign title)-Coal-Coal-fired power stations-Coastal features-Day-Destruction-Hurricanes-Natural disasters-Oceans (topography)-Outdoors-Smoke-Storms (climate change)-WaterShoot:Hurricane Sandy Aftermath in NJ and NYAerial views of devastation in New York and along the New Jersey coast caused by Hurricane Sandy. Hurricane Sandy is an example of the extreme weather symptomatic of continued climate change, as storms continue to become more frequent and more severe. Storms like Hurricane Sandy will increasingly compromise our safety and economic security if governments don’t address emissions and climate policy.
