Expanding our renewable energy future

We are excited to announce the start of two utility-scale solar projects that will significantly increase our amount of renewable energy to the Pikes Peak region.

Totaling 95 megawatts, the projects will power about 30,000 homes annually and increase our solar energy offering to 130 megawatts. Combined with hydro power, our renewable energy portfolio will total about 15 percent of our summer generating capacity when the projects come online.
