The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, the administration's position on the climate crisis makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Therefore, until November 2020, the NewEnergyNews theme song:

    “Guzman Energy announced Tuesday it reached out to Tri-State Generation and Transmission with a ‘large-scale, transformative, economic proposal’ to help rapidly decarbonize the generation supply for dozens of rural electric cooperatives [and save money for electricity customers], but its offer was rejected…Guzman offered to purchase and shutter three coal-fired units owned by Tri-State, and replace the power with a mix of generation more than 70% renewable through a long-term fixed-price agreement…Tri-State officials indicated they are not currently interested in the proposal, but could revisit the idea…

    Rocky Mountain Institute turned up the heat on Tri-State last year when it issued a report concluding 1 million consumers could save more than $600 million through 2030 if Tri-State retired some of its fossil-fuel plants. Now Guzman Energy says it has sufficient capital to [move Tri-State to 70% New Energy and] retire 800 MW of coal generation…Tri-State supplies power to 43 rural electric cooperatives and some of those members have asked regulators to exit their supplier, seeking cheaper, cleaner power…Approximately half of Tri-State's generation comes from coal…[Guzman's proposal] would have provided Tri-State with a ‘substantial direct cash infusion’ to finance the early retirement of nearly half of the utility's coal generation not already slated for early closure…” click here for more
