Today, following news reports that Rocky Mountain Power has updated its energy plans, Representative John Curtis (R-UT) made the following statement:


“The decision by Rocky Mountain Power to extend the life of coal plants shows why market driven policies are better answers than the government picking winners and losers,” said Rep. Curtis. “We can’t move faster than the pace of technology if we want a reliable and resilient energy grid. With Utah’s natural resources, it is possible to reach our goal of affordable, reliable, and clean energy.”


Utah’s Third Congressional District, which Curtis represents, includes vast amounts of Utah’s natural resources in rural counties that can be used for energy production. Curtis has long believed that fossil fuels can, and should, be part of our energy future that is affordable, reliable, and clean. He has urged fellow policymakers to stop demonizing the workers and communities who have powered our country for generations using traditional energy sources.
