IMPLICATIONS OF A DOUBLING OF KENTUCKY COAL PRODUCTION FOR THE STATE ECONOMY
This study examines the nature and magnitude of benefits and cost that would occur in Kentucky economy if the output of coal in Kentucky would double in 8 to 10 years. The cost benefit analysis is conducted for three separate scenarios, each representing a different composition of demand for four categories of coal consumption: export; electric utilities; industry, commerce and household; and coal conversion to gas or liquid. The study includes the major impact on the coal mining industry, coal supportive industries, coal conversion, population, employment, local and state revenue, social infrastructure and cost related thereto, and the environment.
