Show Support for Taylorville Energy Center

After decades of decline for the Illinois coal industry, new coal-fed power plant technologies promise to help Illinois responsibly tap its vast reserves, grow the central and southern Illinois economy and hold energy prices down. These environmentally advanced technologies will produce electricity while dramatically lowering emissions and capturing and permanently storing more than 50 percent of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) that would otherwise enter the atmosphere.


The first such facility proposed for the state, and one of the first in the nation, is the Taylorville Energy Center (TEC), which will be one of the most environmentally friendly power plants in the world that uses coal. You can visit www.cleancoalillinois.com for more information concerning the benefits of this project.

The Taylorville Energy Center is coming up for a vote in the Illinois Legislature within the next two weeks. The contractor (our customer) and the developer have asked for our support. How we can help:

  • Contact your state representative to indicate your support for this project. Don't know your district number? Just search your village or town information; it should have your district number and representative's name. The following link provides phone and email contact information for each district representative listed alphabetically.

  • Call one or several of the representatives listed below and leave a message of support for the Taylorville Energy Center. The list of state reps below are "on the fence" and undecided as to their vote. Give them a quick call - only takes a minute!

Many thanks for your help and assistance with this important project.
