Coal plants get new life in the sun
from The University of Texas at Austin
Cheaper renewable energy is reshaping how electricity is generated and consumed. In many U.S. electricity markets, coal-fired power plants are being retired because they can no longer compete on price compared with other sources of energy, including wind and solar. But is there a way to still make use of all those old coal plants and mines? Brooke Holleman, a graduate student in UT Austin's Energy Institute, has an answer: Turn them into utility-scale solar farms.
