MONESSEN, Pa., Jan. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Pennsylvania Coal Alliance enthusiastically endorsed Gov. Tom Corbett's energy plan as a comprehensive approach that capitalizes on the state's resources and maximizes the economic benefits to all Pennsylvanians.

"An 'all-of-the-above' approach to energy makes enormous sense in building an energy portfolio," said Alliance CEO John Pippy.  "The governor's plan recognizes the critical role coal plays, and will continue to play, in the generation of electricity. 

"We applaud the governor for embracing this path toward energy security and economic prosperity.  A balanced energy policy that promotes all the Commonwealth's indigenous resources, including coal, through market driven choices to satisfy demand, will assure that manufacturers, retailers and consumers continue to benefit from a reliable, affordable energy supply for years to come."
