Tanner's Creek Generating Station

Tanner's Creek Generating Station (also spelled Tanners Creek) is a major, 1000-MWe coal-fired electrical power plant in Indiana. Located on the north bank of Ohio River, it is one of the two coal-fired power stations within 3 miles (5 km) of Lawrenceburg, Indiana, near the tripoint of Indiana, Ohio, and Kentucky (the other plant being the Miami Fort Power Station in the neighboring Ohio). The plant is situated directly across the Ohio river from Petersburg, Boone County, Kentucky. Tanner's Creek is one of the two Indiana coal power plants owned by Indiana Michigan Power, a subsidiary of American Electric Power (the other plant being Rockport Generating Station near Rockport, Indiana).

Environmental impact

With three out of four of its units dating back to the 1950s, the plant was ranked 67th on the United States list of dirtiest power plants in terms of sulphur dioxide emissions per megawatt-hour of electrical energy produced in 2006.
