Are you paying extra for coal powered electricity?

Are you paying too much for your electricity and at the same time polluting the planet? If your community gets some of its electricity from a coal fired power plant (you likely do; the percentage has been dropping in the US but it’s still over 25%), check out this series of maps in this article that show whether it would be cheaper to shut them down and replace it with renewables. This is the map for 2018. There’s also a 2025 map if you want to see into the future.
