Coal is on the comeback, but challenges remain for the industry in the wake of Obama's War on Coal
News in Focus Radio Interview December 5th
Guests: Mr. Bob Murray, Chairman, President, and CEO of Murray Energy, and Jim Martin, Chairman of the 60 Plus Association, a national seniors’ advocacy organization.
Today, we continue our discussion on the comeback of coal in the Trump era and what the President and his administration are doing to address America's energy needs and the reliability and security of the national electric grid.
Because of Washington politics and blocking of the Perry Plan by FERC, electric generation powered by coal is still decreasing with the closure of more coal-fired power plants. PGM, the grid operator, expresses concern about grid reliability with the acceleration of these plant closures with nothing to replace them. This is an Ohio problem, as additional coal plants on the Ohio River and two nuclear plants run by First Energy are slated to close by 2021 and 2022.
