Power Generation Capacity: 85 MW
Non-Carbon Energy Mix: 100%
Energy Sources: Waste Coal
This is a controversial one. Stronghold's strategy involves co-locating its crypt mines at old coal plants and converts waste coal into energy to power its operations. We categorize Stronghold's waste coal facilities as 100% non-carbon because the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) classifies waste coal as a "Tier II Alternative Energy" on par with hydroelectric power. An excerpt from the PUC fact sheet is shown below.
Should waste coal be categorized as carbon-free? Tell us what you think.
