Lansing's Board Water and Lighting is getting a little bit greener. The 182 million dollar project is set to open Monday and officials say it's one of the cleanest in Michigan and in the United States.
It will be powered by natural gas which is much cleaner and more efficient than our coal fired facilities," said Steve Serkaian, Director of Communications for BWL.
It's all part of a plan. The Moores Park Steam Plant will close tomorrow as well as three units from the Eckert Power Station. Before, residue from the coal powered plants would travel to other businesses.
"There's a lot of coal dust that blows all the way across," said Jack Oliver, co-owner of REO Town Pub. "The stacks are real high so its suppose to blow beyond the city but we really do get a lot of coal dust."
Using natural gas at this plant will reduce BWL's carbon footprint by 50 percent.
"The BWL will save more than 300 thousand tons of coal a year that it won't have to burn at our old facilities at moors park and Eckert," said Serkaian.
Other businesses have been benefiting from the new plant as well.
"We've seen an increase traffic flow, we've seen an increase of people coming down here seeing what's going on down here obviously," said Oliver.
BWL also hopes to revitalize the area and create a trend of economic growth.
The public is welcome to attend the opening at 9:30 a.m. tomorrow. BWL asks those who plan to attend tomorrow to park two blocks south of the plant.
