While declining in use, coal continues to play a role in MEAG Power’s utilization of its diverse portfolio to ensure the reliable and economical supply of power. In 2021, coal comprised 9% of our delivered energy, up from 2% the prior year as an increase in natural gas prices made coal more economical. MEAG Power’s ownership in coal-fired generation – and on-site fuel storage at coal plants – enhances the security, fuel diversity, reliability and resiliency of our overall power supply.
