Water levels could fall so low this winter that the city of Aspemay struggle to generate power, and water owners could see shortages.
The Yampa Valley’s existing coal-fired plants have strong water portfolios that could be used to create green hydrogen or another storage technology called molten salt.
Glen Canyon Dam, climate change and invasive plant species are threatening the Colorado River.
Despite widespread global success and huge opportunity for reducing fossil fuel demand, solar water heating is virtually unheard of in the U.S.
The water once used to cool coal-fired power plants could soon be available for other uses, even to help fill a new drought-protection pool in Lake Powell.
Endangered fish in the Yampa River may benefit as coal-fired power stations close in the next 10 to 15 years.
A proposed hydroelectric project on the Little Colorado River shows the tricky trade-offs in transitioning from fossil fuels.
