The article highlights comments from Jon Wellinghoff, acting chairman of the U.S. Federal Regulatory Energy Commission, that the time has passed for the traditional coal-fired plant which belches pollutants into the atmosphere. According to him, Nevada can generate enough power from renewable energy alone to justify the north-south line. A brief background of Wellinghoff is provided including his position as Nevada's first consumer advocate.
