  12. 13. While in Mattoon Check Out
  13. 14. History <ul><li>The town's name honors William Mattoon, who helped construct the Terre Haute and Alton Railroad. The projected junction of this rail line with the Illinois Central in 1854 convinced local settlers that the land was an ideal site for a community. Swamp grass and prairie would give way to steel rails, homes and businesses. </li></ul><ul><li>With the westward movement of the railroads, Mattoon prospered and grew at a surprising rate. The first churches, schools and businesses were established. The town counted more than 100 buildings by 1856. The following year, officials of the growing community started the steps to incorporate. In 1861, the final charter was adopted. </li></ul>
  14. 15. History <ul><li>The Lincoln family has long been part of the area's history. They first settled in Coles County in 1831 on a farm about three miles south of the future site of Mattoon. Although he never lived in Coles County, the future President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, frequently traveled through the area as a circuit-riding lawyer. One of the famous debates with Stephen Douglas took place in Coles County in 1858. </li></ul><ul><li>Manufacturing became an important part of the local economy between World War I and World War II. The discovery of oil in 1940 gave Mattoon's growth yet another boost. </li></ul><ul><li>Throughout its development, a key to Mattoon's prosperity has been its location in the great Midwestern farm belt. The rich, black farmland around Mattoon is abundantly productive. </li></ul>
  15. 16. FutureGen
  16. 17. What is FutureGen? <ul><li>FutureGen is the first of its kind coal-fueled power plant that will link state of the art technologies to produce electricity and hydrogen with near-zero emissions. </li></ul>
  17. 18. What is FutureGen? <ul><li>The project will take a significant step in strengthening the United States’ ability to produce reliable energy, improve the environment and reduce our dependence on foreign oil. This effort will serve as a prototype for the next generation of power plants throughout the country and the world. </li></ul>
  18. 19. What is FutureGen? <ul><li>FutureGen will also serve as a research laboratory for discovering and refining clean coal technology, hydrogen production and carbon sequestration. As new technology is discovered and evolves, it will be incorporated into the design and operation of the plant. FutureGen will foster innovations that will affect the energy industry for years to come. </li></ul>
  19. 20. What is FutureGen? <ul><li>The $1.5 billion project is a government-industry partnership between the U.S. Department of Energy and the FutureGen Alliance, a consortium of the world’s largest coal and energy producers. </li></ul>
  20. 21. What is FutureGen? <ul><li>The FutureGen plant will be a medium-sized coal-fueled plant, generating approximately 275 megawatts of electricity, enough to supply approximately 150,000 U.S. households. </li></ul>
  21. 22. FutureGen <ul><li>The Department of Energy announced plans to build FutureGen in 2003. By May 2006, 12 sites in seven states applied to host the plant. In July 2006, the FutureGen Alliance announced the four finalists for the facility: Mattoon and Tuscola in Illinois; and Jewett and Odessa in Texas. Mattoon, Illinois was selected in December, 2007. </li></ul>
  22. 23. FutureGen <ul><li>An economic impact study from Southern Illinois University Carbondale found that FutureGen would have a much larger economic impact than the 1,300 construction jobs and 150 permanent jobs that are estimated to be created. </li></ul>
  23. 24. FutureGen <ul><li>During the four-year construction period, there would also be more than $1 billion in economic impact statewide. Approximately 1,225 indirect and induced spin-off jobs will be created as a result of the ripple effect generated by FutureGen. </li></ul>
