The Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA),
. . . currently expects a new record of coal-fired capacity to close during 2018:
. . . . . . 15.4 GW,
. . . . . . 44 units at,
. . . . . . 22 plants in,
. . . . . . 14 states across the United States.

The IEEFA expects an additional
. . . 21.4 GW of coal-fired capacity closing over the next
. . . 6 years.

“Meanwhile, the coal industry,
. . . while it may loom large in the imagination, and in some small regions of the country,
. . . is actually quite small, both in terms of jobs, and
. . . its overall economic contribution nationally.”

There is an incredible dichotomy, between:
. . . . . . what politicians are saying, and
. . . . . . who are actually in control, making the money decisions.
