The Navajo generating station, the biggest coal-fired power plant in the US West, will live to see another two years. On Monday, Navajo Nation leaders approved a lease with the plant’s utility owners that will keep the ailing, 2 250 MW complex operating through December 2019. The owners signaled on Tuesday that they’ll sign the deal this week, the Navajo Nation Council said by email.
