The Mission of the Kentucky Coal Association is to provide effective leadership for the coal industry and ultimately to enhance the ability of the Kentucky coal industry to compete in domestic and world coal markets.
Through a proactive approach in dealing with elected officials, state agencies, the media, and the general public, the association represents its member companies in innovative ways designed to educate the citizens of Kentucky about energy resources in general and coal in particular.
Coal touches every Kentuckian. Coal powers the state literally and figuratively. Coal provides over 80% of the state’s electrical power and mining one of the state’s major industrial employers. The Kentucky Coal Association carries this message in a multifaceted program supported by coal producers, suppliers, transporters, utilities, financial institutions, consulting firms, and individuals.
