If you’ve ever spent time using our State Map, you can see that coal usage varies from state to state. However, one thing doesn’t vary: coal’s abundance is almost unrivaled in this country and around the world.
In fact, the International Energy Administration predicts that coal will be the world’s top energy source within the next five years. Coal’s dominance relies on its abundance, but also on its reliable reputation. Coal-fueled energy is also affordable, keeping costs low for families and small businesses.
Families already spend a fair portion of their income on energy – a study commissioned by ACCCE found that families will spend 21 percent of their pre-tax income on energy costs in 2012. That is a steep price to pay – especially when other essentials need to provided for. And families on fixed-incomes are hit even harder. Coal-fueled electricity is essential to keeping these costs down.
Use our State Map to learn about energy in your state. And remember – coal offers fuel savings for your family, and the small businesses that strive to keep costs as low as possible.
