Richard H. Gorsuch Generating Station is a coal-fired power station owned and operated by American Municipal Power - Ohio (AMP) near Marietta, Ohio.

On May 18, 2010, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Justice Department announced that AMP would be permanently retiring the plant by Dec. 31, 2012, under a settlement to resolve violations of the Clean Air Act's New Source Review requirements. Interim sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide emission limits will be implemented until that date. Also part of the settlement, AMP will spend $15 million on an environmental mitigation project and pay a civil penalty of $850,000.[1]

The plant was retired in December 2010.[2]
