Duke Energy to resubmit plan to close Gallagher coal station basins
May 12, 2022
Duke Energy had been working on plans to close its Gallagher Station years before it officially announced the decision in 2021.
The station was a two-unit, coal-fired generating facility that opened in 1958, according to Duke Energy’s website. The station is located in New Albany off Jackson Street.
Submitted in 2016, the plans to close the six coal ash basins at the site were approved by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management in 2019 and 2021.
