    Excellent news. But I wonder what Nevada’s total
    carbon footprint is now. Pennsylvania’s is huge.

    I don’t think it is particularly large, at least for coal plants. There are just two big coal plants, if I am not mistaken. The third, the big, dirty, obsolescent Mojave plant, was retired about a year ago.
