There are currently three ARIPPA membership classes: sustaining, supporting and associate.
ARIPPA sustaining membership is comprised of electric generation facilities located in or near the anthracite and bituminous coal regions of Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Each plant utilizes circulating fluidized bed (CFB) technology and coal refuse as a primary fuel source to generate electricity. Sustaining member plants also provide unique multimedia environmental benefits by combining the production of energy with the removal of coal refuse piles and reclamation of the land for productive purposes.
