District Issues Air Quality Permits for Cogeneration Equipment at the U.S. Capitol Power Plant

Date Released: 
Thu, 06/06/2013

The District Department of the Environment (DDOE), effective today, issued four air quality permits to the Architect of the Capitol (AOC).  The permits allow the construction of cogeneration equipment and limit allowable plantwide emissions at the U.S. Capitol Power Plant (CPP) for the first time in its history.  It also clears the way for AOC to cease burning coal after the cogeneration plant is commissioned and operational.
