Here’s what we’re working on in Indiana:

Mercury: We are supporting strong limits on harmful mercury emissions from coal-fired power plants.

Climate Change: We are fighting global warming by supporting policies that will reduce carbon emissions, and decrease dangerous co-pollutants, such as mercury.

Clean Energy: We are ensuring that our energy future is renewable, clean, and healthy — for the sake of our children’s health.

Chemical Policy Reform: We are fighting to keep toxic chemicals out of the products we use every day, through the Safer Chemicals Healthy Families coalition.

Natural Gas Pollution: We are demanding strong protections from methane, volatile organic compounds, and other harmful air pollutants associated with fracking and natural gas development.

Indiana’s electricity generation by source, 2011:

  • Coal (93.1%)

  • Natural Gas (3.2%)

  • Other Gases (1.4%)

  • Renewables (1.2%)

Indiana has 85 power plant facilities on EPA’s High Priority Violator (HPV) list--which means they may be in violation of the Clean Air Act

2 of the top 25 polluting coal-fired power plants in the nation are located in Indiana
