Pennsylvania had 78 coal-fired generating units at 40 locations in 2005, with 20,475 megawatts (MW) of capacity - representing 41.5% of the state's total electric generating capacity. This makes PA one of the biggest coal energy producing state in the U.S. Obama and Biden intend to overtax and overregulate this industry right out of existence.

4 more years of Obama and you will see your electric bills tripled, Allentown.

Worst president in history. Don't believe his lies.

Bammy and his crowd hide behind that "green thang", but we still sell a high percentage of coal to places like China that burn it and own us. LOL

In the mean time all of our manufacturing is moving to China where they benefit from cheap coal produced electric. Obama is now going to force us to buy expensive solar panels from China that are produced using electricity produce in coal fired plants with absolutely no pollution control. In addition the coal comes from some of the most dangerous mines in the world where the workers are treated like slaves and black lung the #1 cause of death. This is sustainable green policy?

No. But it is among the cheapest electricity we can buy until we tap into our own natural resources.
