Dale Jr. Gets Clean Coal

Posted by America's Power at 9:42 am, September 05, 2013

What do Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Fulton, Arkansas have in common?

They both understand the importance of clean coal technology and rely on it every day. That is why Dale Jr. visited the John W. Turk Plant, where two-thirds of the employees are local residents. The Turk Plant is the first plant to use ultra-supercritical technology in the United States and is the cleanest coal-fueled power plant in the country.

The Turk Plant is an excellent example of how coal can help a community thrive economically and reduce its emissions.

Dale Jr. got a first-hand look into the daily operations of the plant where he saw them use technology to make their plant better, just like he uses technology to make his racing team perform better.

As a business owner and an energy consumer, Dale Jr. recognizes the importance of affordable and reliable energy from clean coal.
