The Harding Street Station (formerly Elmer W. Stout Generating Station[1]) is a 12-unit, 1,196 MW nameplate capacity coal-, gas-, and oil-fired generating station[2] located at 3700 South Harding Street, Indianapolis. It is owned by Indianapolis Power & Light, a subsidiary of AES.

Environmental impact

Sulphur dioxide

With its oldest coal-fired unit dating back to 1958, the plant was ranked 12th on the United States list of dirtiest power plants in terms of sulphur dioxide emissions per megawatt-hour of electrical energy produced from coal in 2006. The new flue gas desulphurization system (FGS), also known as a scrubber, and the new stack are expected to reduce sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions by 97 percent, and NOxemissions, as well as other pollutants, by some 87 percent.
