To Navajo Generating Station owners and Central Arizona Project Board:
Strong families create healthy communities and a vibrant nation. Yet the strength of Navajo and Hopi communities is at risk. It is increasingly clear that if the Navajo Generating Station shuts down a quarter-century before its time, tribal families would be hardest hit.
Many parents would have to leave the reservation to find work. Children would not have their parents and grandparents with them every day and would lose their important family connections.
At risk is 22 percent of the Navajo Nation’s general budget and more than 85 percent for the Hopi. The operations also contribute hundreds of millions of dollars in direct and indirect economic benefits to regional economies each year, supporting schools, government, fire departments and police, in addition to the purchase of local goods and services from tribal businesses.
Keeping the Navajo Generating Station (NGS) online is vital to secure Arizona’s energy and water future and protect Navajo and Hopi economies.
We call on plant owners and the Central Arizona Project Board to:
· Support the transition of the power plant to new owners;
· Take long-term power from NGS; and
· Fulfill your obligation to the tribes and taxpayers.
