Lagoon Creek Creek Combustion Turbines and Combine Cycle Gas Plant

What TVA is doing about emissions at Kemper

  • All units burn low emitting natural gas or ultra-low sulfur fuel oil.
  • All units are also equipped with dry low NOx burners to reduce NOx emissions.
  • The two combined cycle units are also equipped with SCRs to reduce NOx emissions.
