SUGAR LAND--September 22, 2020--Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--Market realities aren't getting any brighter for the <a href='https://www.industrialinfo.com/database/power/' target='_blank'>coal-fired power-generation</a> sector. After hitting a full-year peak of 314 gigawatts (GW) in 2011, the U.S. coal fleet's total capacity is expected to fall to less than 200 GW in 2025, by which time another 25 GW is slated to shut down, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). But coal remains an important, if diminished, resource in the U.S. energy market, hitting its highest daily output (161.5 megawatts) in more than a year during late July's heat wave. Industrial Info is tracking more than 50 maintenance-related projects at U.S. coal-fired power plants that are set to kick off before the end of the year--and are essential to keeping these remaining plants active. Within this article: Details on some of the major maintenance-related projects at U.S. coal-fired power plants scheduled to begin through the end of 2020, including those from companies such as CLECO Corporation (NYSE:CNL), Xcel Energy Incorporated (NASDAQ:XEL), Southern Company (NYSE:SO), Entergy Corporation (NYSE:ETR), Tennessee Valley Authority and Duke Energy Corporation (NYSE:DUK).
