About half of American electricity comes from domestically mined coal, providing energy security in a volatile and dangerous world.
Since the beginning of the 20th century, electricity from coal has provided the power Americans have needed to improve their lives. Today that same low cost energy helps Oklahoma compete with the rest of the world.
GRDA’s Coal Fired Complex is primarily fueled from coal surface mined in the Powder River Basin, where enormous 80-foot thick layers of low sulfur coal enable safe, nominal cost mining and reduced emissions. If the energy from this GRDA coal was put in your car, it would only cost pennies per gallon!
