Beijing on Friday closed a large coal-fired power plant in its downtown area, replacing it with a gas-fired plant to cut pollution.

Beijing previously had four  coal-fired power plants. The first was closed last July and the last will be closed next year.

In 2015, the city plans to reduce coal consumption by another 4 million tons and limit the annual coal consumption to 15 million tons.
