Gas troubles could bolster efforts to save coal plants

from Bloomberg

A natural gas supply disruption forcing Michigan residents to lower thermostats and automakers to suspend operations could bolster President Donald Trump's effort to keep coal plants operating possibly by invoking national security powers. The episode began when a fire at a compressor station cut off the flow of natural gas from the facility. That prompted Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to plead with consumers to reduce natural gas usage on the coldest day of the year, with CMS Energy Corp.'s Consumers Energy raising the specter of potential shutoffs. Consumers Energy said it expected to resume normal operations within a day of the event, but the incident will drive the political debate about whether steps should be taken to buttress coal as it loses market share to natural gas. more
