From Texas Standard:
While the Trump administration says the "war on coal" is over, market forces are having their say when it comes to the fossil fuel, closing plants in several Texas communities.
Texas' largest generator of coal-powered energy, Luminant, says it is ceasing operations at two plants in the state. The company says Texas' competitive energy market and cheap natural gas make these older coal-fired plants unprofitable. Another Texas coal operator has already announced plans to close two facilities.
