Platte River took ownership of all assets at the Medicine
Bow Wind Project site, located southeast of Medicine Bow, Wyoming,
and began delivering
wind energy to Fort Collins Utilities for its Wind Power Pilot Program
in the spring of 1998. In the fall of 1999 and the summer of 2000, additional
turbines were built as Estes Park Light & Power, Longmont Power & Communications
and Loveland Water and Power began receiving wind energy for their
individual wind power programs. Two 600 kW and seven 660 kW Vestas
currently generate energy at the site.
In the fall of 2009, the Silver Sage Wind Site, owned
and operated by Duke Energy, was put into commercial operation. Platte
River contracts for 12 MW of wind energy generated
at Silver Sage, located approximately 12 miles west of Cheyenne, Wyoming.
