Reliability in Energy

Reliable energy is an absolute necessity in our time. But some forms of energy generation are more consistently available than others. Relying on fuel that must be carried in by pipeline or generated by cooperative weather can leave an electricity grid vulnerable, and that’s why having a varied fuel supply across the grid is essential. Coal, which is storable on-site and can provide on-demand generation, can help ensure there is electricity available when it’s needed.

And coal is amply available in the U.S. American Consolidated Natural Resources, Inc. manages seven active coal mines across the country, producing 39 million tons of coal per year. That can support more than 8 million homes. The company’s production and reserve base allows American Consolidated Natural Resources to provide electric utility customers with low cost, reliable, high quality coal supplies, which is exactly what America needs.
