Plans are afoot to build a gigantic 279MW natural gas power plant on STAR Campus at UD in Newark, DE. The project developer, TDC, plans to sell up to 71MW of power back to the grid for profit. This project would have terrible consequences for the health and well-being of UD students and Newark residents alike.
