Hayden Generating Station

Key facts:


Hayden has two owners in addition to Xcel Energy: PacifiCorp, Portland, Ore., and Salt River Project, Phoenix, Ariz. Xcel Energy has full operational control. Hayden Station was acquired by Public Service Co. of Colorado, a predecessor to Xcel Energy. The other current owners acquired Hayden Station in 1992 from the Colorado - Ute Electric Association.

Environmental Highlights

Hayden Station controls air emissions with multiple technologies, including baghouses, dry scrubbing systems and low-NOx burners. Baghouses act like giant vacuum cleaners, removing particulate emissions from the flue gas by more than 99 percent. Dry scrubbing systems reduce sulfur dioxide emissions by about 85 percent, and over-fire air equipment reduces nitrogen oxide emissions by up to 50 percent.

Additional controls to further reduce nitrogen oxide emissions at Hayden were
installed in 2015-2016 under the Colorado Clean Air – Clean Jobs Act, supported
by Xcel Energy. That makes Hayden one of the cleanest coal-fired generating stations in the region with advanced emissions control equipment. Hayden Station also discharges no water offsite.

Community Involvement

Hayden Station employees make significant contributions to the local community through donations to the United Way. The employees also serve on local boards, coaching sports and work as volunteer firefighters, emergency medical technicians and search and rescue team members. The plant also supports a variety of community projects each year in both Routt and Moffatt counties, including highway cleanup on local roads.

Energy Saving Tip

Rather than crank up your heat in the winter, keep your thermostat at a moderate level and bundle up. (Who doesn't love fuzzy slippers?)
