Turn on your computer, flip on a light, pop dinner in the microwave... chances are you are using coal-based electricity. In fact, nearly half of all electricity consumed by American households and businesses comes from coal. Our reliance on coal-based electricity enhances our nation’s energy security because coal is a domestically abundant energy resource. With nearly 30% of the globe’s proven and probable reserves, the United States has the most plentiful coal deposits in the world. Plentiful coal supplies translate into lower fuel prices for power generation and ultimately to lower electric bills for families and businesses.
