Coal-fired plant firing up rate payers in Galion

David Schlissel, an attorney and consultant on electric energy and environmental issues, makes a presentation during a public meeting at Galion High School on Wednesday.

GALION — “About 100 people filed into the Galion High School gymnasium Wednesday night to learn more about a controversial Aug. 29 report regarding the Prairie State coal-generated power plant.

Galion and Shelby have contracts with the company through American Municipal Power Ohio, pacts that may cost both communities. David Schlissel, an attorney and consultant on electric energy and environmental issues, presented the report, saying Galion could end up paying $8 million more than expected for electricity through the Prairie State Energy Campus plant, while Shelby could end up paying $3 million.

Schlissel’s projections are based on a report by the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis, an organization formed in 2011 to help communities move toward using sustainable energy and to decrease the use of coal and other non-renewable energy sources.”
