Partnering With Communities to Retire Existing Coal Plants
Working in partnership with local communities, we’ve helped to secure the retirement of more than 100 coal plants.
Cleaning Up Coal Ash; Transitioning to Clean Energy
We’ll keep fighting until existing coal capacity is shut down and the more than 1,400 coal ash ponds and dumps that poison our communities are cleaned up. We won’t stop until we’ve achieved a just transition to a society powered by wind, solar, and other renewable resources.
Strengthening Federal Standards
To get there, we’re working to strengthen and enforce federal air, water, and waste standards that rein in coal-based pollution.
Eliminating the Dirty Energy Bailout
We’re litigating before public utility commissions and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to stop utilities from forcing consumers to bail out aging, unprofitable coal, and to halt the rush to replace retiring coal units with gas plants rather than clean energy.
We’re also working to speed the transition to clean energy by fighting to ensure that dirty energy no longer enjoys an unfair economic advantage — and that consumers are able to choose cleaner energy resources that are better for their wallets and their lungs.
