Denver (AP) - Governor Bill Ritter and officials from the Tri-State Generation and Transmission plan to hold a press conference about a new wind project at the State Capitol Monday.
Ritter's office says it will be Tri-State's first large wind project in the state.
Tri-State is a wholestate electric supplier based in Westminster. It currently gets 72% of it's power from coal and roughly 1% from wind and solar.
By contrast, Minneapolis-based XCEL Energy, Colorado's largest electric utility, gets 10% of it's power from renewable energy sources.
