Ross Electric - Celebrating 40 Years of Continuous Quality in Colorado

Cascade Hydroelectric Plant #1

Contractor: Aztec General Contractors
Owner:    Colorado Springs Utilities
Project:      Electric power and controls for new hydroelectric generating facility
Location:    Cascade, CO


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 (C8277).
