Big Bend Power Station, owned by Tampa Electric Company, is a large, polluting coal plant next to Apollo Beach. Although the plant is within a mile of five schools, it is currently breaking open dumping rules by polluting the groundwater with both arsenic and fluoride. Every three weeks, someone dies because this plant continues to burn coal. Florida has some of the most abundant solar energy capacity in the country. It’s time for companies like Tampa Electric to start using it.
Tell Tampa Electric CEO, John B. Ramil, to close down Big Bend Station and start investing in unlimited sources of renewable energy like the sun.
