Description (excerpt):

The analysis of U.S. coal plants found 72 percent of existing U.S. coal capacity and 80 percent of existing U.S. coal plants are either more costly to continue operating compared to building new nearby wind or solar plants, or are slated to retire in the next four years. The analysis includes information on public health and climate emissions impacts of the U.S. coal fleet. Our report also provides policy recommendations to accelerate the transition to a cleaner, cheaper grid.
