The federal mandate to slash carbon emissions nationwide would shut down far fewer coal-fired plants in Texas than originally estimated, the state's biggest electric distribution grid operator said in a report released Oct. 16. The Electric Reliability Council of Texas said that 4,000 megawatts of coal-fired power, or 1 in 4 plants, would shut down, sharply down from last November when the operator predicted almost half of the state's coal fleet would need to be shuttered.
