EDF joined forces with Moms Clean Air Force and M.J. Bradley & Associates to create an interactive mapping tool that can show you how many power plants that emit high levels of smog-forming oxides of nitrogen (NOx) pollution are near your community. Many of these plants are emitting NOx pollution at levels well above what is achievable through modern pollution controls.
You can set the map to show the NOx emission rate and top NOx emitters, the year or season of NOx pollution, and the type of fuel source for power plants in your area.
The map also shows NOx pollution from fossil fuel power plants that are in or near low-income communities and communities of color.
