APPA's Crisson discusses costs of switching from coal to natural gas

As U.S. EPA prepares to regulate emissions from large stationary sources early next year, what will the impacts be on utilities? How will the switch from coal to natural gas affect the industry's bottom line? During today's OnPoint, Mark Crisson, CEO of the American Public Power Association, discusses a new study that examines the costs of switching from coal to natural gas for electricity production. Crisson explains how Congress can address the issue legislatively and talks about why utilities may benefit from a lack of regulation in the short term.
