Goose Creek, SC 2009

The second-largest fossil plant in SCE&G's system generates 650 megawatts of electricity by burning pulverized coal in a single unit. At full load, Williams Station can produce enough power in one hour to supply the average electric needs of 650 residential customers for one month. It can also generate 50 megawatts of electricity from two natural gas combustion turbines.

A scrubber was installed in 2009 to reduce sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions. At a cost of more than $170 million, the scrubber eliminates more than 95 percent of SO2. A co-benefit is that approximately 60-90 percent of mercury emissions are also eliminated.
