Coal "Off The Table"

That's part of the headline in today's Tribune.

SME has asked that the DEQ revoke their air quality permit. They have 15 days to appeal their own request. If they do not, then a coal-fired plant cannot be built unless they apply for another new permit from the DEQ.

SME also indicated that they are not going to erect wind turbines at the HGS site, but will continue their efforts toward a natural gas-fired facility.

This is Tim Gregori speaking so take that for what it is worth. Lets hope he finally realized this was not doable. Now he should take his little gas plant and put it in SME land where it really belongs.
