Cheaper: Better #energy?

Views: 163
Xcel Energy,
. . . is a utility company with millions of electric customers,
. . . in the middle of the country, from Texas to Michigan.
In booming Colorado, the company asked for proposals,
. . . to construct big power plants,
. . . using wind turbines, and solar panels.

The bids have come in so low,
. . . that the company will be able to build, and
. . . operate the new plants,
. . . for less money than it would have to pay,
. . . just to keep running its old, coal-burning power plants.

So the plan will be cheaper,
. . . but why will it be better?

Because, it will cut Xcel’s emissions.
. . . That includes the carbon dioxide,
. . . that is warming the planet, of course,
but, it also includes other pollutants,
. . . like the fine particles,
. . . that can send children to the hospital,
. . . with asthma attacks.
