The good news these days about Farmington, N.M. is that the air looks clear. That’s a huge change.

For 60 years, the air was dingy, polluted by two enormous coal-fired power stations in nine units that produced 3,723 megawatts of generation — enough to power two million homes. Now, just 1,540 megawatts remain in two units equipped with modern, air-pollution control systems.
