Jones Generating Station

Key facts:

Overview

Jones Station is Xcel Energy's largest natural gas power plant in the Texas area. It was named for the late Clifford B. Jones, who was president of Lubbock's Texas Tech University and a rancher.

Environmental Highlights

Jones uses 3 million to 5 million gallons of recycled water (treated sewage effluent) from the City of Lubbock each day for cooling and other vital plant purposes. Use of the sewage effluent helps save fresh water for other uses. The company pioneered the use of sewage effluent for industrial facilities at Jones and several of its other southwestern plants. Jones is a zero discharge plant, which means no process waters leave the site. Cooling water from Jones is reused for irrigating grass and forage on nearby farmland.

Community Involvement

Jones Station employees are involved in their community as volunteer firefighters, paramedics, Boy Scout leaders and church leaders. Employees also work with various support organizations in the area such as Multiple Sclerosis Society, Ronald McDonald House, Burkhart Center for Autism and American Heart Association.

Break Ground, Not the Law

Always call 811 before digging in your yard to avoid hitting buried gas or electric lines. Not only is it the safe thing to do, but it's the law.
