That coal power plant has been there 30 or 40 years it will probably continue to be used for another 20 to 30 years, when it does get replaced, my guess would be natural gas turbine.
Because if the local power grid didn't have the capacity for the plant before it sure as heck isn't going to have the capacity once they start using even more power.
But the important thing is the Alcoa plant is going again.
