Energy Efficiency Expert Says KY Needs To Wean Itself Off Coal-Build Wind Turbines Instead

Lexington, KY – Glenn Cannon, is a past chair of the American Public Power Association and until recently was the General Manager of a Light and Power Company in Waverly, Iowa. Cannon says Iowa has tried to wean itself off coal-fired power plants, by building wind turbines. He thinks Kentucky could, and should do the same.

Cannon's appearance was co-sponsored by the Kentucky Environmental Foundation, a group which has long opposed an Eastern Kentucky Power Co-Op plan to build two new coal-fired power plants in an effort to meet projected energy demands.
