Colorado’s wind energy is already displacing more than 3 million metric tons of climate-altering carbon pollution, which is the equivalent of taking over 700,000 cars off the road. Wind energy is also saving more than 1.5 million gallons of water per year, which is enough to meet the needs of 36,990 people, or over a third of Boulder’s population.21Nov2013 | admin | 0 comments | Continued
Xcel Energy expects to pay about $25/MWh to $35/MWh over 20 years for recently approved wind power purchase agreements, Xcel President and CEO Ben Fowke said during an earnings conference call with analysts.29Oct2013 | admin | 0 comments | Continued
Installation of 14 additional turbines at the Highlands Wind project expands its capacity to 91MW. Located roughly 175 miles northeast of Denver, the facility began commercial operation last December with 42, 1.6MW GE turbines.7Oct2013 | admin | 0 comments | Continued
The manufacturer has secured an 80-MW order out of a master supply agreement with EDF Renewable Energy for multiple wind-energy projects in the U.S., and its factories in Colorado will be involved in manufacturing blades, nacelles and towers for them.13Sep2013 | admin | 0 comments | Continued
It will take time to rebuild the project pipeline, ensuring a slow year for new capacity additions in 2013. Continued low natural gas prices, modest electricity demand growth, and limited near-term demand from state RPS requirements have also
put a damper on industry growth expectations.
The 57.5-meter blades, about 189 feet each in length, for the V117-3.3 MW are the longest ever manufactured in the in the United States. The Brighton facility is the only Vestas factory in the world equipped to produce this blade type.30May2013 | admin | 0 comments | Continued
The industry installed 13,124 MW with 4Q numbers showing 2012 was best year ever. In fact, for the first time it became the number one source of new U.S. electic generating capacity. Texas, California, Kansas, Oklahoma, Illinois are leaders,

Job fairs to be held in Pueblo and Colorado Springs this week. The company has signed an agreement to supply towers for a number of non-Vestas wind power projects during the next two years.16Jan2013 | admin | 0 comments | Continued
I strongly believe that any national energy policy we develop should reflect the success Colorado has had as an all-of-the-above energy state. Great states make things – and great countries produce their own energy. Wind power is taking us closer to the goal of a clean energy future and a strengthened manufacturing sector.15Jan2013 | admin | 0 comments | Continued
The future of wind power in Colorado is uncertain because although the Fiscal Cliff deal extended the Production Tax Credit for 2013 projects, Xcel Energy recently noted that it has all the renewable energy it needs to meet state requirements.2Jan2013 | admin | 2 comments | Continued
