first_imgWASHINGTON (AP) — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is telling President Joe Biden that he’s eager to forge a new U.S.-U.K. trade deal. The prime minister’s office says the push for a new deal came Saturday in a broad-ranging phone call that touched on the global response to the coronavirus pandemic. Two other points of discussion were Biden’s plans to rejoin the Paris climate accord and the World Health Organization. A new trade agreement between the allies is a higher priority for Johnson than it is for Biden. A White House statement on the call made no mention of discussion on trade.last_img

San Antonio utility closes Deely coal plant

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享KSAT:On the last day of 2018, CPS Energy officially closed its coal-fired Deely plant that has been open since the late 1970s. The Deely station was part of the Calaveras Power Station on the Southeast Side near Highway 181 and Loop 1604.The decision was made in 2011 due to the plant needing many environmental upgrades and a big push from the local environmental community. CPS Energy CEO Paula Gold-Williams said the much-needed environmental upgrades are what ultimately shut its doors.“From an environmental standpoint, it was the right decision,” Gold-Williams said.Gold-Williams said that while CPS Energy is steering away from coal, there is another option being considered. “I think a lot of it will be focused on gas and then new technologies coming down the pipe,” Gold-Williams said.“Coal is not the cheapest. Gas is … arguably.” And it’s “consistent, great for reliability and very cost effective,” Gold-Williams said.More: CPS Energy closes coal-fired Deely plant in operation since ’70s to focus on cleaner energy sources San Antonio utility closes Deely coal plantlast_img
