In this Sept. 4, 2011 photo, smoke rises from the stacks of the main plant facility at the Navajo Generating Station, as seen from Lake Powell in Page, Ariz. The Navajo Nation company has ended its pursuit of a coal-fired power plant on the reservation and the mine that feeds it. The decision Friday, March 22, 2019 means the Navajo Generating Station and the Kayenta Mine will close this year, ending decades of operation in northeastern Arizona. The bid by the Navajo Transitional Energy Company had been considered a long-shot. (Ross D. Franklin/AP, File)
