“I am a husband, father of three and US Navy veteran that has worked in the power industry for 27 years. I currently work in a coal burning power plant with all the up to date environmental controls. We supply power to 675,000 homes and I am very proud of the work I do. Myself and my coworkers are very worried about EPA regulations. I work with 125 men and women that would stand to lose good paying jobs and millions stand to lose affordable power.” – Tom C.

A bill moving through the North Dakota legislature, SB 2314 on the Senate side, would call for a study on the state’s future energy supply. Some legislators, like Senator Jessica Unruh (R-33), have called for action to “level the playing field,” as subsidies in the state for wind power often causes operators to favor those sources. Coal power provides the reliable baseload electricity that North Dakota needs, read our thoughts on the bill and North Dakota’s energy future here: http://www.americaspower.org/north-dakota-recognizes-importance-coal-fueled-baseload-electricity/
