Coal Plants Fueled By Powder River Basin Coal
The Powder River Basin of northeast Wyoming and southeast Montana is the largest coal-producing region in the United States. Coal mined in the region fuels 300 coal-fired electric generating units from coast to coast. This map shows the many U.S. coal-fired power plants fueled by Powder River Basin coal mining—a massive and dangerous carbon footprint.
