Power plant foes call for shutting down Navajo Generating Station

A group of conservationists opposed to coal-fired electricity is calling for shutting down the Navajo Generating Station power plant in Page as a cost saving measure to owner SRP.  The group calls for covering the Central Arizona Project with solar panels instead at a cost of about $8 billion. But according to the SRP spokesman quoted in the Daily Sun, the study ignores the cost of losing nearly 1,000 jobs and eliminating royalties to the Navajo Nation.
