Indiana coal-fired electricity generation falls by almost half in five years

December 25, 2020

Terre Haute Tribune Star:

President Trump promised to revive the U.S. coal industry. According to the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis, in 2014 coal supplied 38.6% of U.S. energy needs, declining to 23.4% in 2019, and was projected to drop another 19% in 2020. In 2014, coal-fired power plants provided about 85% of Indiana’s electricity generation, according to the Indiana Business Review. That declined to 59% in 2019.
