The Coalition for a Secure Energy Future is an organization that has been officially established to get the message out to businesses, policymakers, and residents in the Upper Midwest that retaining an all-of-the-above energy mix that includes coal as a regional energy resource will help keep electric rates low, jobs plentiful, and the economy robust.
The Coalition is a project of the Lignite Energy Council.
