Because of the extensive economic and environmental benefits to be gained from the use of Integrated Gasification Combined-Cycle with Carbon Capture and Storage technology to develop the Taylorville Energy Center, this effort has attracted a diverse array of supporters.
From the Citizens Utility Board and Illinois AFL-CIO to the Illinois Coal Association and Clean Air Task Force, groups across the state are working to advance the project. Legislators in support come from both parties and all areas of the state.
For Illinois, this project is the ultimate win-win-win. It's good for consumers, good for business and good for the environment.
