banana Largest coal plant in the West shuts down
Advertisement
Good riddance


PHOENIX – The Navajo Generating Station coal-fired power plant burned the last of its coal Monday, marking the end of the plant's 45-year run, Salt River Project, an Arizona utility company, announced.

The plant was the largest coal plant in the West, and its closure will affect the entire region.

The mine supplying the plant closed in August after sending the final shipment of coal to the plant via an electric railroad that stretched 78 miles between the two locations. Since then, the plant had burned down its coal stockpile, which covered more area than a Walmart superstore and parking lot.

The last bit of usable coal burned Monday and the power plant, which could produce 2,250 megawatts of power at full capacity, sent its last electrons down the transmission lines to Phoenix, Tucson and Las Vegas at about 12:09 p.m.

It's up near lake Powell. I've been by it a few times. The stacks are really tall. That is a lot of power to have to replace. Some of the AZ power goes to CA. We'll see.

Could that be why the humming and buzzing sounds in my head have stopped?

Can coal cool cans containing costly coca cola considering condensation can contribute considerably?

lol I ran out of word ideas starting with a "c" followed by an "a" or "o"

It employed a bunch of Navajo and Hopi tribes people.
There's no link to the article so had to find it myself but natural gas and renewables are cheaper and more efficient for that region.

And the tribal people don't really need a massive coal plant..

It's probably a good thing it's being shut down now the indians can't overprice power....

And if you're really lucky, you'll get to meet a gangn of Mexican drug smugglers that just arrived in America in the middle of the night looking for a place to shower, eat, make some phone calls, and borrow your vehicle and credit cards. chuckle

But Trump loves coal.
