Coal reserves in Hastings low
Posted: 06/04/14 09:20
The extreme winter we had has affected the coal reserves for Hastings Utilities. Assistant Manager Al Meyer says the railroads just weren't able to supply them with as much coal as they would have liked. While he says their inventory is lower than they would like, there is not a shortage of coal at the power plant. Meyer says Hastings Utilities will be monitoring the situation throughout the summer, as the hotter temperatures will drive up power use with all those air conditioners running.
