Michigan State to stop burning coal

Michigan State University is taking steps to stop the burning of coal by the end of 2016.

The decision is part of an effort to reduce emissions at its T.B. Simon Power Plant, as well as advance its Energy Transition Plan, which was implemented in 2012.

The university plans to transition to natural gas as its sole fuel source, which provides a cleaner, more stable power supply for the future, according to an article in Michigan State Today.

The decision further helps Michigan State meet future energy needs in a more sustainable fashion.
