I see the fight to close coal fired electric is starting to poke it's head into conversations again. We are having local commercials against coal electricity on all the local stations.
We get most of our electricity from the Hoover/Boulder dam, however when LA needs extra, the grid managers shuffles suppliers around, and we get a bunch from a coal fired plant 40/50 miles NE of Vegas on highway 15, out in the middle of nowhere.
If they (who are they?) are successful in shutting that power plant down electricity around here would get pretty spendy.
