Big Colorado Wind Power Project Wins Approval

4 Oct 01 Oct, 2016

Xcel Energy’s proposal to build wind electric power projects in Colorado to provide clean energy to the Front Range has won approval from the Colorado Public Utilities Commission (PUC). The firm plans to build 300 wind turbines across more than 110,000 acres in Cheyenne, Elbert, Kit Carson, and Lincoln counties in eastern Colorado as part of the Rush Creek Wind Project. A 90-mile transmission line to a substation near Deer Trail will bring the power to the Front Range. The project will likely cost as much as $1.1 billion.
