Photo of the Day
 
Since the mid 70s, the Navajo Generating power plant has been providing electrical power to people across three states. It has also been one of the main employers for members of the Navajo Nation. But the plant's future looks bleak, it has been voted to shut down operations at the end of 2019 - citing concerns that coal power is not economically viable as many utilities turn toward cheaper and cleaner burning fuels like natural gas. With Trump in power, thousands hope they won't lose their jobs. Aerial image (shot from a plane).
