Letter to the Editor: Opportunities are there

By Joe Andrade

Editor:

The upcoming closure of the Carbon Power Plant enables us to consider some alternatives.

Much of Carbon County is well suited for solar energy production and for large-scale energy storage installations.

Unfortunately there has been essentially no Utah Power, Governor, Legislature, Congressmen, and even County Commission recognition of the need and the opportunity for such development.

Our 'leaders' tend to be mired in a 19th century mind set and almost no one is planning for the needs and constraints of this 21st century.

Price and Helper need to focus the Public Service Commission, Governor, Legislature and Rep.Chaffetz on initiatives to move beyond coal- and beyond all fossil fuels.

The opportunities are there - it's the vision that's missing.
