Tucson Electric Power Co. is swapping a chunk of its coal-fired power generation for cleaner-burning natural gas.
If you live in an older home, Southwest Gas may be willing to replace your natural-gas lines — for free.
Tucson Electric Power says it's diversifying its energy portfolio by getting less power from a coal-fired plant in eastern Arizona while moving to expand its purchases of power generated by natural gas.
The following editorial appeared Thursday in the Washington Post:
The Tohono O'odham Nation is taking action to officially oppose a proposed pipeline project in the Altar Valley.
The Pima County Board of Supervisors will officially oppose a planned natural gas pipeline between Tucson and Sasabe.
The Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge would be either just east of the pipeline's route to Mexico or bisected by it. Refuge officials, however, say going through it would be too disruptive to wildlife, including the endangered masked bobwhite quail.
Pima County and Border Patrol officials, among others, want the proposed pipeline to run next to Arizona 286 through the refuge.
Kinder Morgan has applied to build a new natural gas pipeline just west of the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge boundary - a decision that is pitting county, state and federal officials in a dispute over where it should go.
With natural gas prices at their lowest levels in years, Tucson Electric Power Co. hasn't been burning coal at its south-side power plant lately.
