Ahhh...political talking points....always fun to wade through.Far be it from I to stand in the way of a good rant, but here are some additional points:- Natural gas is far more efficient at producing energy than coal - both to build plants and equipment and also to run. It's by nature a cheaper fuel, so even with any increase, it is still well cheaper than coal.- NG planst are far cheaper to build than coal plants - so capital costs are less (which get amortized over life and passed on to consumer).- NG is still at only 50% of net generation as opposed to coal, so costs will go down as market shifts to NG from coal over time - as it will as it is cheaper and cleaner and also abundantly supplied by the US.
