State Week: Energy Package Powers Through – NPR Illinois

The State of Illinois is overhauling its energy policy, shifting to more renewable sources in the decades to come. Month of negotiations resulted in a break through this week that will keep open nuclear plants in the near term, saving jobs. Coal fired power plants will be phased out before the middle of century.

Supporters of the package call this a responsible plan to address climate change. Opponents raised concerns about energy availability and cost.

Our panel features host Sean Crawford, Charlie Wheeler, Hannah Meisel and WBEZ’s State Government and Politics Reporter Dave McKinney.
