NEW TECHNOLOGY

Advanced coal technologies, like high efficiency, low emissions (HELE) coal plants will give American energy choices without having to sacrifice reliability or affordability.

EFFICIENCY & EMISSIONS

Today’s coal-fueled power plants have reduced emissions – S02, N0x, particulates, and mercury – by 90%.

CONSUMER SAVINGS

American save $93B in electricity cost annually through a diverse power grid powered by coal.
