Mine Mouth Power Plant

Home / Technical Information / Mine Mouth Power Plant


Mine Mount Power Plant is a large electrical power plant built directly adjacent to the coal mine that is the source of its fuel; often used with lignite and other such coals that are expensive to ship by train. A strategy intended to minimize transportation costs and provide a more reliable supply flow, though in practical use these plants have faced challenges such as environmental regulations or the depletion of the resources at the site. http://www.theenergylibrary.com
