    1 coal fired plant really isn't going to impact air quality. 50 yes. Also pollution control technology is pretty advanced as compared to the plants built n the 50s - 70s.

    Is there coal in the DR? Surely they are not going to ship it in. Gas would be better than coal if they have to bring a fuel from elsewhere.

    In parts of Barahona, electricity is between 11:00 AM and 4:00 PM, and occasionally after 9:00 PM daily. There is plenty of wind to blow the smoke away. The Ingenio spews a lot of smoke, but it does not seem to pollute much.

    The fact is we in the US will use less and less coal. However we have abundant supply. Therefore we are happy to sell it outside the US to whoever needs it.

    I would think coal fired plants could be placed where the prevailing winds would blow it far away from the DR. The greenhouse gases still flow but at this point in the DR's history more energy at the best price is preferable to the current situation.
