Utilities are moving away from coal fired electricity to alternatives in order to lower carbon emissions. In fact from 2011 to the middle of 2020, 95 gigawatts (GW) of US coal capacity was closed or switched to alternatives, and another 25 GW is slated to be shut down by 2025. In response, coal plant producers may adopt seasonal operations, according to the US Energy Information Administration (EIA). One option is shutting down plants in the spring and fall when usage is less than 50%. Do you see such plans as feasible? Why or why not
