SACE | Southern Alliance for Clean Energy
ADVISORY: Clean Energy Advocates to Launch Updated Resource for Finding and Tracking Coal Ash in the Southeast
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Jennifer Rennicks, SACE, 865.235.1448, Jennifer@cleanenergy.org
The Southern Alliance for Clean Energy (SACE) will unveil the redesigned SoutheastCoalAsh.org website in a telepress call on Thursday, September 15 at 10am ET. Please join us to walk through the new features of the site.
The newly updated and redesigned southeastcoalash.org website is a one-stop-shop for data on coal ash in the region, with a map feature that makes it easy for reporters to find where coal ash is stored in a given area (for example an outlet’s coverage area).
The new site links to data provided by utilities in compliance with the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) coal ash rule saving reporters or concerned citizens the trouble of hunting down each individual utility’s website. The website will be updated as new data from utilities becomes available.
The SoutheastCoalAsh.org website was initially launched in December 2012 and is managed by SACE in partnership with Appalachian Voices, Southern Environmental Law Center, and North Carolina Conservation Network.
