As the holiday season approaches and ads for every product imaginable fill the airways, it got us thinking about the value of affordable energy.

This week’s Coal Fact underscores the value Americans get from affordable, reliable, coal fueled electricity.

In fact, the U.S. Energy Information Administration projects that over the course of the next 20 years, coal prices are predicted to be much lower than other fuels like natural gas. According to EIA, natural gas prices for electric power generation will increase dramatically by 74% over the next 20 years, while coal prices are projected to rise by just 26% over the same period.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is exactly why we need an “all of the above” approach to energy policy that includes coal, our most abundant and affordable domestic energy resource.

Stand with us and tell the EPA that American families and businesses count on affordable electricity to power their way of life.
