Troeger: Plans clean up the air 23.6.2015 Steamboat Pilot
In regards to EPA’s Proposed Clean Power Plan: No matter how much the deniers, industry apologists and ideologues try to twist the facts and attack science, health-robbing air pollution and manmade climate change are real. Fortunately, Colorado is a nationwide leader in addressing both.  Between 2005 and 2014, Colorado added over 2,000 MW of low-cost renewable energy — 800 MW of additional renewables are currently under construction. Both Xcel and Tri-State have announced plans for even more (in order to meet preexisting state renewable energy standards of 30 percent and 20 percent, respectively). According to Xcel, our existing grid can safely, reliability and inexpensively handle this increase in renewable generation.  Also, more than $60 million in energy efficiency improvements were installed in homes in all 64 counties, saving 6,360,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity and helping to lower energy costs for low-income households. In short, Colorado has a long and successful history of cleaning up its ...

A cleaner coal 24.5.2015 Steamboat Pilot
A piece of Routt County’s coal industry is undergoing a major addition. Parts were trucked into the Hayden Station power plant, and it took more than a month to assemble a massive crane, the top of which is higher than the largest smoke stack. A state environmental official says new emissions controls at Colorado’s power plants will both reduce haze and improve public health. Michael Silverstein, with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, helped negotiate the plan with the state’s power plants aimed at reducing regional haze. “It was designed to be measurable by the human eye,” Silverstein said. Silverstein said Hayden Station was a “very key facility” during negotiations of the regional haze plan because of its proximity to national parks and wilderness areas. Craig Station, which generates 1,303 megawatts of electricity, was also part of the plan. Silverstein said the emissions controls will reduce both nitrogen oxide and sulphur dioxide, the two pollutants that contribute the most ...
