EPA should promote diverse fuel mix

To the editor: The Environmental Protection Agency’s recent decision to repeal the Clean Power Plan can provide much needed flexibility for America’s electric cooperatives, the not-for-profit utilities that power 56 percent of the nation’s landscape. I write today with Jim Matheson, ...
