Site description

JB Sims Power Generation Plant is a one-unit coal-fired power plant owned by Grand Haven Board of Light & Power. The plant is located near Grand River in Grand Haven, Michigan, with a total capacity of 80 MW. The plant opened in 1983 and is planned for retirement in June 2020. Coal ash is placed into the Ash Ponds located onsite, which is regulated under the CCR rule. The ponds are each approximately 175-190 feet long, 70-80 feet wide, and 4-6 feet deep. Units 1 and 2 inactive ash ponds no longer receive CCR. You can find the industry-reported data here.
