‘How a Plan to Save the Power System Disappeared’
Peter Fairley reports in The Atlantic: A federal lab found a way to modernize the grid, reduce reliance on coal, and save consumers billions. Then Trump appointees blocked it. “This article is a collaboration between The Atlantic and InvestigateWest.” But … Continue reading
