Hello
Gas is still a fossil fuel and I suggest it would be better to replace these units with renewable energy such as wind or solar. We have a difficult enough task to keep climate change within reasonable limits, without switching this plant to another fossil fuel. Or let it be phased out at the government end date.
Kind regards
Christopher Wakeley
