If the plan is implemented, coal’s share of electric generation in the US will fall to 27% by 2030, slightly less than the original proposal which estimated it would account for 30%, Environmental Protection Agency chief Gina McCarthy told reporters yesterday.Coal accounted for 39% of electricity in 2014, according to the Department of Energy.Natural gas’ 30% share of US electricity generation would remain largely the same in 2030 while renewable energy would account for 28%, up from the 22% initially envisioned in the proposed rule.The final rule avoids what the White House called an “early rush to gas” away from coal and encouraged earlier adoption by states of renewable power.It will reward states that invest in energy-efficiency projects in low-income communities in 2020 and 2021.
