The Largest Coal-Fired Power Plant in the West Is Slated for Closure

Now, things are poised to change again as the coal mining and the coal-fired energy production on and around Black Mesa are winding down. In 2005, the Mohave Generating Station closed, and with it one of Peabody's two mines: the Black Mesa Mine.
