The Xcel Energy-Colorado Rush Creek Wind Project is a 95,000 acre wind facility located on the eastern plains—an area rich with wind power resources. The project was built by Xcel Energy and includes two wind farms, 300 Vestas wind turbines, and approximately 83 miles of transmission lines to connect and carry wind power output to homes and businesses across the state.
More about this project:
Wind is a clean, renewable resource and continues to be a growing part of our energy supply. We invest in renewable energy sources to ensure we deliver clean energy in the most economical way. Clean energy is good for the environment, but more importantly, it helps keep costs low. Our industry-leading renewable energy programs give our customers cleaner energy options and more control over their energy use.
Under the Colorado Energy Plan, by 2026, more than half of the energy you depend on will come from low-cost, clean energy sources. We plan to reduce carbon emissions 60 percent in less than a decade, and have a bold vision to deliver 100 percent carbon-free electricity to customers by 2050.
