The Pennsylvania Coal Alliance has announced its endorsement for Gov. Tom Corbett's energy plan. Gov. Corbett released a State Energy Plan, adopting an "all of the above" approach on Tuesday. The plan includes 19 recommendations for the state's resources in coal, oil, natural gas, and renewables. Recommendations also includes plans for energy independence, advanced technologies, economic development, community engagement and workforce development.
"An 'all-of-the-above' approach to energy makes enormous sense in building an energy portfolio. The governor's plan recognizes the critical role coal plays, and will continue to play, in the generation of electricity," Alliance CEO, John Pippy, said. "A balanced energy policy that promotes all the Commonwealth's indigenous resources, including coal, through market driven choices to satisfy demand, will assure that manufacturers, retailers and consumers continue to benefit from a reliable, affordable energy supply for years to come."
