Alaska and Kentucky Utility Customers Protest Loans for Coal Plants

Some electric utility customers in Alaska and Kentucky have joined forces to protest federal loan guarantees for coal fired power plants.  Rate payers alliances representing Fairbanks, the Matanuska Valley and Homer, and similar organizations in Kentucky, are working with watchdog groups to protest U.S. Department of Agriculture’s issuance of $900 million in lien accommodations for a coal burning power plant in the
southern state.
