Mine and power plant locations now online


Kentucky is putting online the locations of power plants, railroads, active coal mines and other coal processing, handling and transportation facilities.

The Kentucky Department for Energy Development and Independence and the Kentucky Geological Survey jointly developed an interactive web map called “Kentucky Energy Infrastructure.” The state created the map service with funding from the Kentucky Coal Education grant.

Associate State Geologist Jerry Weisenfluh says the map includes tools that allow a user to select a defined area, choose a level of detail and click on mapped items, such as power plants, mines and coal-related facilities, to see information on the particular feature.
