Oregon-based PacifiCorp has announced it plans to close one of the three generators at the Cholla coal-fired power plant in northern Arizona by the end of the year.

The remaining two units at the coal plant are scheduled to close in 2025.

Meanwhile, the Coronado Generating Station coal-fired plant near St. Johns and the New Mexico border reportedly got a lifeline that should keep most of the 200 jobs there until 2032.

Cholla Unit 4 is a 395-megawatt coal-fired generator at the Cholla plant in the small town of Joseph City, Arizona.

Portland-based PacifiCorp provides power in Oregon, Washington, California, Utah, Wyoming and Idaho.
