A coal plant, often referred to as a coal-powered power plant, is a power plant that produces electricity by burning coal to produce steam, or steam.

It is generally located in a central location, such as a power station, a coal mine, or a city.

A coal-fueled power plant produces the same amount of electricity as a similar-sized gas-fired plant.

A new coal-power plant is often built in a manner similar to a coal plant that is being converted to generate renewable electricity.

The cost of the electricity produced by a coal power plant is typically much lower than that of a gas- or coal-based power plant.
