INCREASING INDIGENOUES RENEWABLES ELIMINATES HIGH COST OF FOSSIL FUEL
TRANSPORTATION

Equity”, ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENT / ttate]
By developing indigenous renewable resources, all regions also can enjoy substantial cost savings from decreased
fossil fuel transportation costs. The University of Wyoming estimates that up to 80 percent of the cost of coal for
ratepayers in Illinois is to cover railway costs. Coal at the mouth of a mine in Wyoming, for example, costs
about $5 per ton. By the time it reaches a power plant outside of Chicago, that same coal costs about $30.

AND, MORE EVIDENCE – NATURAL GAS TRANSPORTATION

Equity”, ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENT / ttate]
The cumulative costs to transport natural gas may be even higher. Natural gas transportation and distribution
already account for 41 percent of the residential price of natural gas. Since the construction of natural gas pipelines
can cost as much as $420,000 per mile [53], fully constructing the natural gas infrastructure recommended by the
Administration’s National Energy Plan (which calls for over 301,000 miles of new natural gas transmission and
distribution pipelines) could cost ratepayers as much as $126.4 billion. [54]
