How much energy do our coal plants in America produce?

    As stated by the U.S. department of energy, coal provides the energy for half of the electricity used in the states today.  While we have a large supply of coal in the country, efforts are still being made to find and use coal efficiently.  In the future, it is believed coal plants will be made to be emission-free.  If they can become more sustainable and eco-friendly, perhaps coal plants will provide for more of America’s energy than they do today.
