Shutdown starts at New Mexico coal-fired power plant serving Southwest

Second unit at San Juan Generating Station will be closed over the weekend
The first of two units to be shut down at the coal-fired power plant that has served customers throughout the American Southwest for decades is no longer in operation. Officials with New Mexico’s largest electric utility say Unit 3 at the San Juan Generating Station was switched off just after midnight on Dec. 19 and the other unit will be turned off this weekend as Public Service Co. of New Mexico looks to meet a federally-mandated deadline.
