Time to develop a long-term tribal sustainable energy policy

Two years ago Black Mesa Trust (BMT) was encouraged to intervene in the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) proceeding on post-2005 operation of Mohave Generating Station (MGS) as a coal-fire generating unit.

We were accepted as an intervener despite objections from the Hopi Tribe, the Navajo Nation and Peabody Energy. I am proud to inform you that as a result of our input, along with that of To’ Nizhoni Ani, a Navajo grassroots organization, CPUC has ordered Southern California Edison (SCE): “to explore alternatives to replace power from Mohave in a scenario where the plant is permanently closed or complements the generation from Mohave, if Mohave returns to service.
