I couldn’t find any official plans to go coal-free, but there is a ray of hope in the Pac-Nor. Last month, the Northwest Power and Conservation Council (NWPCC), released its Sixth Power Plan, outlining the potential for a cost-effective shut-down of half of the coal plants in Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and Washington states by 2020. No word was given on plans to be totally coal-free.
Strictly from the angle of Power Generation, Sourcewatch.org states that neither Rhode Island or Vermont had any coal burning power plants in their states.
That doesn’t mean that coal wasn’t burned for heat or manufacturing in those states.
Not having a power plant in a state also does not mean that state has no reliance on coal-generated electricity. They almost certainly do.
