Burning Coal, Burning Cash: 2014 Update

Burning Coal, Burning Cash: 2014 Update

Date: 1/14/2014

The Union of Concerned Scientists released Burning Coal, Burning Cash: 2014 Update, a study demonstrating the continued dependence of states on coal imports and the result on local economies. The analysis finds that 37 states were net importers of coal in 2012, with eight states spending more than $1 billion on net coal imports. The study suggests that consumers in those states would be better served by increased spending in-state on local renewable energy development and energy efficiency measures. A slide deck with national findings and fact sheets for Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, Ohio, and Tennessee are available at the link provided above.
