November 10, 2016
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Following last night’s election results, the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity issued the following statement:
“Last night, Americans across the country made it abundantly clear that they are tired of the status quo, they are tired of Washington’s disconnect from the rest of the country and they are tired of struggling to make ends meet. Last night, history was made.
“Today, America awakes to an opportunity to turn away from the costly regulations that have hamstrung our nation’s electric generating capabilities and limited our access to affordable and reliable power. We look forward to working with President-elect Donald Trump as he steps forward to lead this great country.”
Mike Duncan, president and CEO of the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity
The American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity is a partnership of the industries involved in producing electricity from coal. Coal, an abundant and affordable American energy resource, provides nearly 35 percent of our power. By 2018, the coal-based power industry is expected to have invested more than $126 billion to reduce emissions and to use this critical resource more cleanly and efficiently than ever before.
