The Houston-based company’s purchase of Ameren’s five coal-fired power plants hinges on Dynegy receiving a five-year variance.

The company recently bought five Illinois coal power plants from Ameren, including the Edwards coal plant in Bartonville. The Illinois Pollution Control Board denied a request by Ameren to transfer the company’s pollution variance to Dynegy. &nbsp;That would have given the company five extra years to comply with state pollution standards enacted in 2006.</div><p> Thu, 06 Jun 2013 22:07:22 +0000 Alex Rusciano 6907 at http://peoriapublicradio.org State board denies Ameren pollution variance request for coal plants
