Clean Energy Can Be Generated In Connecticut

Sep 5th, 2014 | By | Category: Energy

Connecticut gets 51% of its electricity from natural gas, and another 41% from the Millstone nuclear plant near New London. The state has 20 natural gas burning power plants bringing electricity to the grid. The one coal-burning plant, Bridgeport Harbor Generating Station, contributes a mere 1.4% to net electrical generation. The remaining electrical power comes from a few different sources, including hydroelectric.

In the state of Connecticut, we produce over a third of our carbon dioxide emissions, 36%, from the generation of electricity.
