This would make the County’s air the same or cleaner (if more than 100% of emissions are offset locally) as a result of this new coal-fired power plant. Neither the Commission nor GenPower are willing to entertain this idea, and no such compromise provision is in the PILOT (tax-break) agreement.
CALP’s founding belief is that Morgantown and Monongalia County, West Virginia can do better than Longview.

We applaud this effort and look forward to participating in it. In the meantime, here are some types of economic development that we believe the county should be supporting in place of Longview:
