Not many people know that Colorado Springs Utilities owns and
operates a hydroelectric generating facility. But they do!
Located near the town of Cascade,
this hydro plant operates a high pressure turbine fed from natural water
sources high in the Rocky Mountains.
Our project included a new
electric service for the new generating facility, electrical distribution in
the facility, power connections for the new turbine generator, and the new
controls and Scada system.
Project successfully completed March 2010
