Power Company Switches Gas For Coal

News: Stawell Power, an electricity producer owned by Queensland state, is to shut down its 385 megawatt (MW) Swanbank E power station for three years and restart two coal units with a combined capacity of 350MW at its plant in Tarong, Australia. According to Downstream Today, the company believes it makes more sense to sell gas to other users than to use it to generate power, and that returning to coal will make it more competitive.
