A2 SIDNEY HERALD. SUNDAYJUNE I6. 2019 YOUR NEWS STATE NEWS Colstrip Units 1 and 2 to retire early due to economics Rising costs offuel and maintenance, dropping price of clean energy also puts pressure on Units 3 and 4 Talen Energy an- nounced the oldest coal-burning units at the Colstrip coal plant in Colstrip, Montana, will retire by the end of the year, two and a half years earlier than re- quired under an earlier legal settlement. Units 1 and 2 which were built in the 1970s have faced serious problems remaining competitive as energy markets shift dramatically. Economic shifts in energy are ex- pected to put continued pressure on the remain- ing units at the plant, which produce power for three times the price of Montana wind projects.

The Ameri- can Wind Energy Asso- ciation ranks Montana third for wind power potential in the United States. Montana’s wind resource has the poten— tial to power 6.4 million average homes by 2030 according to the US. Department of Energy. In their release, Talen cited ongoing troubles finding agreement on a price for coal from the nearby Rosebud mine, which has fed the plant for decades. The mine’s owner, Westmoreland Coal Co., emerged from bankruptcy earlier this BULLETIN BOARD Red Cross blood drive A Red Cross Blood Drive will be held on Tuesday, June 18, from 12 pm. to 6 pm. at St. Matthew’s Parish Center, 310 7th St. SE, Sidney.
