This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.fox21news.com/news/pueblo-steel-mill-is-the-worlds-first-to-run-almost-entirely-off-solar-energy/) reduced by 75%. (I'm a bot)
> The city is now home to the world's first steel mill running almost completely on solar energy.
> The steel mill is moving away from coal burning and harnessing the power of the sun to make sustainable steel instead. "And today we power that off the traditional electric grid, which creates emissions. With this solar facility, we will produce some of the cleanest steel, not only in the US, but in the world right now," said Skip Herald, CEO of Evraz North America.
> "In terms of traditional steel making and the way we produce steel with our furnaces, this is 75% cleaner than the other steel making processes in the country," said Herald.
