Industry Announces New Ads Urging Voters to Stand Up for Coal in This Election

WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity today announced the launch of new ads telling voters that now is the time to stand up to the EPA’s anti-coal agenda. The new campaign features three new ads that will air nationally on network and cable television. The ads are a continuation of ACCCE’s “Now is the Time” ad campaign that began last May.

“Voters will have a choice this November to elect candidates who stand up for coal and low cost electricity,” said Mike Duncan, president and CEO for the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity. “We have an EPA that wants to shutter more than 200 coal-fired power units across 25 states, destroying jobs and making electricity more expensive for businesses and families. Now is the time to vote for an America’s energy future with our home field advantage fuel -- coal.”

The American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity (ACCCE) is a non-profit, non-partisan partnership of companies involved in producing electricity from coal. Because coal is America’s most abundant energy resource, ACCCE supports energy policies that balance coal’s vital role in meeting our country’s growing need for affordable and reliable electricity with the need to protect the environment. ACCCE also advocates for the development and deployment of advanced clean coal technologies that will produce electricity with near-zero emissions. For more information, visit or
