- Strengthening the U.S. Economy
- Cloud Peak Fueling Hometown Economies
August 29, 2016
Supporting nearly 1.7 million direct and indirect American jobs, and providing the materials that feed our supply chain, mining companies are the foundation of the U.S. economy. Cloud Peak Energy is one such company, providing significant contributions to U.S., state and local economies. Its most direct impacts are in Wyoming, Montana and Colorado but, as the supplier of nearly 3 percent of U.S. energy in 2015, its contributions are felt across the U.S. From taxes and royalties paid, to community contributions and goods and services purchased, Cloud Peak and many in the industry are deeply involved in their communities because the communities where they work are the communities they call home.
