Count on Coal Launches New Information Resource on “Costly Power Plan”

Washington, D.C. – Today the Count on Coal initiative launched a new online resource to highlight the economic impacts of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Clean Power Plan on individual states. features an interactive map of the U.S. that enables the public to see the higher costs incurred by each state, as well as assess nationwide costs associated with this plan designed to make the nation’s power supply more expensive and less reliable.

By bringing to light facts that the administration has sought to bury, the site will be especially useful to state leaders who are encouraged to put down their pencils and halt their state’s efforts to impose a federal regulation recently stayed by the Supreme Court. provides a one-stop-shopping opportunity for state officials, businesses and ratepayers who are interested in finding out more about how EPA’s far-reaching rule will disrupt both their finances and power supplies.

Count on Coal is a grassroots advocacy program supported by NMA for the purpose of informing the public about the benefits of affordable electricity from coal.
