Another wind farm for Xcel

By | May 27, 2006

I know that I like to point out all the bad news that Xcel Energy generates. I figure I should balance that out with some good news: according to, Xcel has a new wind farm coming! From the article: “An Oregon company says it’ll build a 50-turbine wind farm in southeastern Colorado, big enough to produce 75 megawatts of electricity for Xcel Energy.” I know that Xcel isn’t doing this out of the goodness of their hearts. They’re doing this because the voters of Colorado are forcing them to.

But no matter what the reason, the fact remains the same: more of Xcel’s electricity is going to be generated via alternative energy sources. And that is good news.
