DALLAS, TX -
Luminant today announced it has formally acted to terminate air permit applications for eight coal-fueled power units. The action delivers on Luminant’s commitment to terminate the permit process upon close of the TXU merger transaction that closed this past Wednesday. The company suspended efforts to obtain the permits in February.
“We said we would pull these permit applications from consideration once the TXU merger was complete, and we are delivering on that commitment,” said Mike Greene, chief executive officer, Luminant.
