Coronado plant still up and running. My wife owns Jaramillo’s bubblegum and Store. Still a great place to live.Last time I was in St Johns They were building the second Coal plant. It was the county seat of the largest county in AZ, and still only had one traffic light! I worked there about a year and a half. I hear both plants are closed now.
Not a bad place to live, If you had a job! DR
An AZ power company is assembling a solar power system, I think it's supposed to power like 80,000 homesThere were 3 units, largest coal plant in the US. The plant was designed in the 40's with out pollution controls per se. It was impractical to update the plant for the Obama EPA rules. We keep dismantling power stations and we are not building new ones. There will come a time when the power company will not have enough. California will see this soon. As there are not even any new power stations planned for the the state. Solar and wind are great except when the wind does not blow and it is night time. California is looking into building sized capisator banks which cost billions and will provide power for up to 3 hours. They figure it is cheaper to buy the electricity from someone else, which they do. a retired electrical industry worker.
I agree about the living conditions. Pretty part of the state, just to much dandruff for me.

Propane or natural gas?I worked on Unit two in 1983, it was pretty much the only thing out there at that time.
I'm still in CA, our idiot Governer is mandating electric cars for everyone but not adding any electric generation projects. He has outlawed small gas engines, and already the power goes out often! What do you think runs a portable generator? DR
My backup generator will run on all three Gas, NG, and LPG. And all three will be illegal in CA in three years. [ the small engines that run on these]. I just upgraded, so that my new one will last another 20 years or so.Propane or natural gas?
