letter to the editor:

Our escape from clutches of coal

I want to say that I am very enthusiastic about the planned closing of the Reid Gardner coal plant and the fact that only two additional coal plants remain before Nevada is free from coal.

I am someone who knows how difficult it is for power providers to replace coal, and I am grateful for what I know is no easy task.

As someone who is very committed and passionate about a healthy planet, I believe that we can and must do more with energy efficiency. I am writing to support the newly formed Energy Committee, and I hope that it will prioritize energy efficiency in the coming years.
