Coal is a non-renewable resource used by half of the world’s power companies.
Coal creates power by being burned. 30% of our power comes from coal.
Coal is very reliable as it is the largest source of power worldwide.
As a low-cost resource it cheaper than other power sources and is widely available.
It’s a large producer of carbon dioxide which is a greenhouse gas. Our mission is to reduce the emission of carbon dioxide from our facilities by 40% from 2005 levels by 2030.
To meet the federal government’s guidelines, our coal plants must be retired once they reach end of life (about 50 years). That, or be retrofitted to include Carbon Capture and Storage technology by 2030.
We’re working to lower our reliance on coal. And adding more emerging technologies like carbon capture and storage.
