U.S. electricity consumers struggling to pay utility bills are getting hurt by U.S. EPA’s crackdown on coal-fired power, the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity said in a report today.

The lobby group’s 15-page analysis says people making $50,000 a year or less spent 12 percent of after-tax income on energy in 2001. In 2013, they are projected to spend 20 percent of their income on energy. The estimate for Americans making less than $30,000 per year is 27 percent.

ACCCE is using the numbers to tout coal’s contribution to cheap electricity and fight back against EPA efforts to curb pollution from coal-fired power plants.

“While American families fight to secure their economic footing, new EPA regulations are adding to their burden with higher electricity and energy costs,” ACCCE President Mike Duncan said in a statement.
