Letter to the Editor: Cool with coal shutdown

Posted

Moms all around Colorado received great news recently: Xcel Energy plans to retire two coal-fired power plants in Pueblo. Pollution creates and exacerbates many health problems to which children are particularly vulnerable. Too many kids suffer from asthma (1 in 12 in Colorado), low birth weight and other health issues. Our children’s health is the number one issue for parents so I am glad to see Xcel is looking for ways to provide cleaner energy.

As an added bonus, the prices for electricity could go down. Balancing the family budget is challenging with all the expenses of raising kids.

I hope the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) looks favorably on Xcel’s proposal. Less expensive energy that’s healthier for our kids and better for their futures is a mom-approved proposal!

Jen Clanahan,
