The mission of Madison County Clean Power Coalition is to protect the environment and advocate for the communities polluted by the processing and burning of railroad ties.

Through the efforts of the Madison County Clean Power Coalition,  residents will find a solution to the problems associated with the Madison GRP Biomass Power Plant. We will stop GRP's use of toxic railroad ties as fuel, and we will work to mitigate air, water, land, sound, and light pollution.
