Hoeven aims to help North Dakota's lignite-fueled power plants

According to S&P Global:

Power plants fueled by locally mined lignite produce nearly two-thirds of North Dakota's net generation but face an uncertain future due to low market prices and competing wind resources.

The situation prompted one of the state's U.S. senators, John Hoeven, to meet with Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Chairman Neil Chatterjee in late February and ask the agency to ensure that coal-fired resources are fairly valued for their reliability and resilience.
