Preparations have started for the 26 MW of new wind plant to be built by wind developer enXco at Peetz, Colorado, to supply Public Service Company (PSCo) of Colorado. The utility has recently expanded its green pricing program (Windpower Monthly, September 2000). EnXco plans to begin building early next year at the remote site in Logan County in the extreme north-eastern corner of the state, says enXco's Steven Yatsko. The county has granted a conditional use permit and enXco hopes to complete work on environmental studies, other permits and financing by the end of the year. Though the area has lots of room for expansion, Yatsko says capacity on the nearby Western Area Power Administration transmission lines is constrained, limiting the project to about 26 MW. EnXco has signed a 15 year power purchase agreement at an undisclosed price with PSCo for 70 GWh/year. A turbine supplier has not been chosen.
