The Susquehanna River Basin Commission (SRBC) has accepted $97,000 in settlement offers from Panda Power Funds LP for violations at three of its natural gas-fired power plants in Pennsylvania. The SRBC, which oversees conservation and monitors industrial development in the area, said the company consumed water in excess of regulatory thresholds at its Panda, Patriot and Hummel power plants; Panda and Patriot were recently commissioned. Hummel, which is one of the country’s largest coal-to-gas switching projects, is expected to be in operation by 2018. Panda said permits for the facilities were issued to another developer and did not meet the facilities requirements.
