Tuesday Torque: Disappearing Power Plants

 Towns all over the country had their own power plants in the not-too-distant past. The government, through the EPA has been pushing them out and beating them down, and there are not many left. Our little county seat in Hamilton County has a power plant with big Fairbanks engines, and they are used occasionally when the big transmission lines fail. The county board is talking about getting rid of it. Holy Cow. You can't pull electricity out of a hat. Thanks for a great pick, Merle!
