Coal used to be the most prominent source of energy in the United States. In recent years, however, coal has certifiably been shown to be bad for the world’s environment.
While changing from providing energy primarily through coal mining and burning to other, more-renewable forms makes life difficult for families that have relied on coal for income, the switch is undeniably more beneficial for the world at large.
Stream Energy Pushes For Renewable Energy Forms
Stream, based in Dallas, Texas, is one of the biggest advocates for alternative energy forms in the United States. While the company and its constituents hate seeing families struggle with bringing in income, they love knowing that the world continually becomes a better place as more people switch to renewable forms of energy.
The National Center for Policy Analysis found that coal was the go-to source of energy in America in 2012, accounting for a whopping 40 percent of the nation’s power. In recent years, natural gas has overtaken coal as the most popular source of energy, something Stream is happy about.
Also popular in today’s world of sourcing energy are solar and wind, as they are infinitely renewable, although they cost much more than natural gas or coal to garner use from.
The United States Clean Power Plan took even more away from coal producers and users, a bill that was signed in 2016. It collectively reduced the production capacity of coal plants in the United States by roughly 13,000 megawatts in the year it was founded. Click Here for additional information.
