Colorado co-ops want to have more local and renewable electricity, Tri-State exit

Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association’s coal-fired Nucla Station, at the west end of Montrose County, will close by the end of 2022. The massive generation cooperative also plans to retire a coal-fired electric generation unit at Craig Station by the end of 2025. But some of the co-op’s members feel Tri-State isn’t moving to renewable power sources quickly enough. (William Woody, Special to The Colorado Sun)
