Mine workers and other groups that want to keep the coal-fired power plant near Page open plan to march at the state Capitol on Tuesday.
The Navajo Generating Station in Page is set to close at the end of 2019 because Salt River Project and the other utility owners say natural gas is much cheaper for them and their customers.
The Navajo Nation hired consultants to find a new buyer, but so far that effort has not turned up any interested parties that have been identified publicly. SRP officials say that without a buyer, they are beginning the shutdown.
