A new study says the Texas electric grid would still be reliable if two of the state’s coal plants shut down in the coming years.

The study comes from a progressive advocacy group that calls some coal plants “old, inefficient and dirty.” Consulting firm Electric Power Engineers performed the study for the group Public Citizen. It looked at what would happen if Dallas company Luminant closed its Big Brown and Monticello plants by the year 2021.
