On their website, they have past news of opening a plant near Franklin, over in Heard county.
It might be of interest to follow up that story.
They announced the plans to open there in 2008 and expected to be open in 2010.
Wonder if that came/ is coming to fruition?
The problem is the very few number of low paying jobs it adds locally while dumping 250,000 tons of carbon dioxide, and 250 tons of toxic carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides into the air. Also all the traffic on our roads.
Everything in the world is a tradeoff, but trading local air quality and roads for a handful of marginal wage jobs is not very smart. It would take 50 power plants like that to replace one Carter's mill.
