USEA CONSENSUS BRIEFING: Social and Economic Impacts of San Juan CCUS Project, Featuring Nathan Duckett, Mayor of Farmington, New Mexico

Many small towns in the western United States depend on coal mining and the production of coal fueled electricity for employment and tax revenue to sustain the provision of municipal services, including education. Mayor Nathan Duckett will discuss the importance of the coal economy to Farmington, New Mexico and how Enchant Energy’s proposed Carbon Capture Project at the San Juan Generation Station is a model for how to maintain the local coal economy in an environmentally sustainable manner.
