Power Plants

FILE - This Sept. 4, 2011, file photo, shows the main plant facility at the Navajo Generating Station, as seen from Lake Powell in Page, Ariz. Two of the power plants on the Navajo Nation, the Navajo Generating Station in Page and the Four Corners Power Plant near Farmington, N.M., are among the country's top emitters of carbon dioxide, releasing 17.8 million short tons and 12.9 million short tons in 2013, respectively. Both have plans to shutter some of the generating units, which will cut down on carbon dioxide emissions that are blamed for heating the planet. The U.S. administration on Monday, June 2, 2014, unveiled its plan to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from U.S. power plants by 30 percent from 2005 levels by 2030. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin, File)
