Coal fired utilities delayed in US

53 coal-fired plants were canceled or delayed in 2007, according to Global Energy Decisions, a private consulting firm that tracks power plants for the Department of Energy, this according to an article by ENN.

Uncertainties relate to the cost of climate change, construction costs and transportation problems.

Would be very interesting to see what will start taking the blame if electricity prices start to rise substantially or load-shedding starts happening in the US.
