Is Los Angeles going to be free of coal by 2020?



  1. 0 Votes

    Earlier this year, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa announced that the city is making plans to end its reliance on coal-generated electricity by the year 2020.  To replace power from coal, which is the single dirtiest fossil fuel in the world, the city plans to rely more on cleaner energy sources such as renewables and natural gas.  Of course, the city still has to follow through and fully implement its ambitious plan before 2020.  But Los Angeles has had enough confidence in the feasibility of its plan to signal the city’s main power provider that it does not support expansion of a Utah coal-fired power plant that currently supplies the city with electricity.  This summer expansion of the coal plant was canceled, largely because Los Angeles does not plan to be using coal-generated electricity for very much longer.
