America is Powered by the World’s Largest Supply of Coal

It’s simple: Coal is one of America’s most abundant domestically produced energy resources. America has more coal within its borders than any other country with over 260 billion tons of coal reserves. America’s recoverable coal reserves has the energy equivalent of 900 billion barrels of oil, more than the Middle East’s known oil reservesRead more +

Our abundant coal will provide American families and businesses with affordable electricity for decades to come. In fact, America’s 260 billion tons of coal reserves would last 290 years at current consumption rates.

Just as modern life in the United States is unimaginable without electricity, so is the notion that our nation could meet its growing energy needs without coal. Projections by the U.S. Energy Information Administration say that coal will remain the dominant fuel for electricity generation in the U.S. through 2040.
