The American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity is worried about the Environmental Protection Agency’s public listening tour to get input on new regulations for existing power plants. Lisa Camooso-Miller is a coalition spokesperson and says the EPA selected states that receive only a small share of their electricity from coal.
Camooso-Miller says Nebraska is among the top 10 states that generate the most electricity from coal and has the 11th lowest energy prices in the nation. She says the EPA didn’t schedule information sessions in any of the 10 states with the highest percentage of electricity generated from coal.
The Coalition reports that the EPA hasn’t scheduled sessions in any of the 10 states with the highest percentage of electricity generated from coal. They report coal is projected to remain the dominant fuel for electricity generation in the U-S through 2040 and $110-billion has been invested to reduce emissions from coal fired power plant.
