Midwest Energy News is slowing down a bit for the holidays. Here are the details:

Reporter Dan Haugen will be handling website duties tomorrow and next week. Things are awfully slow this time of year, so I’m sure he’d be grateful if you sent story recommendations his way. The website will not be updated on Monday, December 26.

The email digest will go on hiatus Friday through Monday, returning Tuesday, December 27.

We’ll also be taking a break on Monday, January 2. I’m sure there will probably be some football on or something.

If you’re taking a long break next week, fear not! I’ll compile a list of the top stories you missed over the holiday break.

And as always, thanks to you for reading and supporting Midwest Energy News.
