This report was prepared in support of the Ohio River Basin Energy Study (ORBES), a multidisciplinary policy research program sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency. It estimates monetary losses to agricultural producers from airborne residuals in the ORBES region ( all of Kentucky, most of West Virginia, southwestern Pennsylvania, and substantial portions of Illinois, Indiana and Ohio). Results are reported for three ORBES energy development scenarios--a base case; a case assuming non-compliance with state implementation plans (SIPs); and a high electrical energy growth case. Two different analyses are provided, one based on nominal load emissions from ORBES-region utilities and the other based on peak load emissions.
