THIS WEEK’S BUSINESS PRESS POLL QUESTION
Log onto the Las Vegas Business Press Web site and let us hear your opinion on this week’s question.
LS Power last week joined NV Energy in announcing that it was shelving plans to build a coal-fired power plant in Nevada because of increasing concerns about the cost and feasibility of using coal to power future plants rather than using alternative clean, renewable energy sources. Critics of coal-fired utility plants say increasing concerns about climate change and the growing likelihood of new regulatory rules being imposed to limit carbon emissions makes it almost certain that coal’s days are numbered.
Do you think any power plants that are fueled with coal will ever again be built in Nevada?
