Navajo Generating Station

Hope everybody is having a great Labor Day week-end, nice and warm here in Western Colorado.
I am ready for fall and a cool down, and all the good weather that usually favors us in this part of the
Rocky Mountain West and High Desert Country.

Today I am going to attach an article and series of articles that AZCENTRAL as been presenting in regards to the Page Arizona, Navajo Generating Station owned by several utilities, operated by Salt River Project in Phoenix.  There are a series of articles that you can click on after you click on AZCENTRAL link I have provided at the bottom of the page that will give you a pretty good understanding of what is going with generating plant and the the situation there

There is a lot of controversy going on about coal in the west.  Black Mesa from what I understand is the biggest coal project in the US and feeds the the Navajo Generating Station and employee's a work force made up of 90% Native Americans.  This Utility is planing on shutting dow in 2019.  This will be a big blow to the Navajo and Hopi tribes that mine the coal on Black Mesa which is located near Kayenta AZ.   We are seeing natural gas becoming a cheaper form of energy and much cleaner, this being the primary reason for the shutdown.

The attached link will cover in great detail what is happening on the Reservation in regards to the planned shut down.  If you have been South of Kayenta you will be familiar with the mine location and the electric train that hauls the the coal to the generating station.

Happy Monday every one, just wanted to let anybody that needs good horse hay click on Western Land under the picture for an active link to my website for more info.

Here in Colorado we are having a pretty wet moonsone season, hope we can get the second cutting of hay in the barn with out getting it rained out.  Will just have to see what the rain gods have to say about that.

On the Real Estate-side of things looking for an income producing property would prefer Western Colorado, but would consider else where. Preferably commercial investment

Also if there is somebody who would like to sell a property, commercial, investment, farm and ranch without putting it in the MLS more of a low key sale without everybody knowing you want to sell, let me know might be able to help you out there.  I also have some ranch  properties in Arizona that are not listed at the current time that investors would like to sell let me know if you have some interest there.

Seems to be a lot of High end properties in the west that are not selling real well right now might be the time to think about looking.

Until next time

I have not used my Real Estate Southwest blog for sometime now, thinking now is the time to resume, using my thoughts and publishing timely articles on mainly real estate  and water in the west.  I promise to try and avoid politics only in the sense that it pretains to the blog or articles  being published.

In the meantime while I get my thoughts together and find the subject matter I hope you will find interesting, be updated in a timely news matters by CNN.
