Los Angeles plans to be coal-free by 2025 but doesn’t explain how

The Navajo Generating Station in AZ provides 2.25 GW for people and to pump Colorado River water. New EPA rules could close it.

The City of Los Angeles gets almost 40% of its power from two out-of-state coal plants, the Navajo Generating Station in Arizona and the Intermountain Power Project in Utah. They just announced plans to be coal-free by 2025, which is great, except that they’ve not made public the plans for how they will do it. I’ve checked several articles of this. Jubilant greenies are doing high fives applauding LA’s plans.Their articles link to each other. Yet nowhere is there explanation of how the transition will be accomplished.

Will Los Angeles divest from coal plants they own a piece of? Will the plants be upgraded to natural gas? Will LA need to find new sources of power elsewhere? If new power is needed, then LA will have to find several gigawatts of renewable energy rather quickly. I don’t see how they can become coal-free that fast.
