The state of Indiana expressed its support of advanced coal technologies in legislation adopted in 2002 and 2005. This legislation provides for timely recovery of IGCC construction and operating costs and an investment tax credit for such projects.
Knox County has also granted the project substantial financial incentives. In addition, the project received the maximum amount of $133.5 in federal tax credits under the Clean Coal Facilities Investment of the Energy Policy Act of 2005, demonstrating the support for and interest in this type of clean coal technology at the national level.
The project will receive more than $460 million in federal, state, and local tax incentives.
