Yes, but some idiot that does not understand Economics NOR America, wrote the above BS. Hell, he even got our numbers wrong. Coal is now around 27% of our electricity and for 2017, it should be around 20-24%. Of course, from that point on, it will SLOWLY be shut down. All of the shutdown until end of 2016 has been due to nat gas prices combined with the requirement that all plants have ZERO mercury emissions. Many plants simply shut down and went to either nat gas or wind.
Starting in 2017, it wil be pure economics for at least another 4 years. Once we have SMRs working and proving themselves economically (and they will), then we will see a replacement of coal AND nat gas.
