Brighton, Colo. Has New Peakers

LCG, July 8, 2002--A privately held wholesale seller of power, Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association, Inc., has brought two combustion turbines online approximately 17 miles northeast of Denver, in the town of Brighton.

The plant's GE MS7000EA PG7121 turbines will provide a net output to the grid of 70 megawatts each. The turbines are able to run on both gas and diesel fuel, and will sell their output at times of peak demand.

Tri-State dates back to 1952, and in 2000 brought 12 New Mexico cooperatives into what had been 26 electric power cooperatives and public power districts with headquarters in Westminster, Colorado.
