Blue NG / 2OC Power Plant – Blackrod

“The plant is simply too big, on protected Green Belt land, and its environmental credentials are questionable. There are thousands of gas reduction plants around the UK It is proposed to be located at a gas reduction plant, miles away from the fuel source, miles away from the electrical grid, with little or no opportunity to utilise the waste heat – all key points in choosing appropriate locations.”  RAGE – Residents Against Greenbelt Exploitation, 02 Aug 2010.
