A recent report—“Can Coal Make a Comeback?”—asserts that environmental regulations are a secondary influence in decisions to retire coal-fired electric generating units. We disagree with this assertion.

A bill moving through the North Dakota legislature, SB 2314 on the Senate side, would call for a study on the state’s future energy supply. Some legislators, like Senator Jessica Unruh (R-33), have called for action to “level the playing field,” as subsidies in the state for wind power often causes operators to favor those sources. Coal power provides the reliable baseload electricity that...

Coal-based electricity helps keep electricity prices low for our homes and businesses. In fact, states that get their electricity from coal pay 13% less than the national average. That’s why it’s so important for industry leaders like Kevin Hughes to help us speak out and share the incredible value that the U.S. Coal Fleet provides—every single day. [ Bit.ly Link ]

The coal-based industry is a critical component of America’s diverse energy mix. It consistently delivers reliable and affordable energy to millions across the country. But there’s another reason it’s so important—our national security. Fact is, when we rely on the abundant natural resources that are right here in the U.S., it means we rely less on foreign reserves. It’s a smart, common sense...

Coal is responsible for more than 700,000 U.S. jobs and is mined in 25 states across the U.S., including Wyoming, West Virginia, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and Illinois. That’s why it’s so important for The U.S. Coal Fleet to keep running strong. We rely on it for more than electricity. Thousands of American families count on the coal-based industry for their livelihoods.

Wind and solar power provide intermittent (not always available) power. But when the sun isn’t shining or the wind isn’t blowing, we must have an always available and always reliable electricity source — like coal-based electricity— that can keep up with consumer demand night and day.

Green jobs. It’s a term that gets thrown around a lot these days. But the definition of a “green job” can include anyone from a person who installs solar panels to a bus driver to an EPA employee. And, depending on which definition you use, there are many very different estimates of the number of green jobs. But we do know that the coal-fired electric power industry supports over 740,000 U.S....

The U.S. coal fleet is a crucial part of our nation’s energy mix; but for too long the industry has been attacked by unreasonable and unattainable regulations that don’t make any meaningful difference on climate change. But the new administration brings a new opportunity for common sense energy policies that can showcase the immeasurable value that the U.S. coal fleet provides. It’s the right...
