Yampa Valley Enters into Agreement with Xcel

September 1999 - Yampa Valley, which serves about 21,000 accounts in Steamboat Springs and other cities in northwestern Colorado, is offering its customers the opportunity to purchase 100-kWh blocks of wind power for 3¢/kWh. Yampa Valley has entered into an agreement with Public Service Company of Colorado (PSCO) to purchase about half of the output from one of the turbines installed at the Ponnequin wind site in northern Colorado. As of August 1999, Yampa had sold about 260 of the 700 blocks available for the program. Delivery of the wind power, originally scheduled for April, is awaiting FERC approval of the wholesale power contract.
