Black Hills Energy-Colorado Electric, a unit of Black Hills Corp., has filed a proposal with the Colorado Public Utilities Commission to own 50 percent of a planned 29 MW wind turbine project to help meet the state of Colorado's renewable energy standard. The mandate requires investor-owned utilities to acquire 30 percent of their energy from renewable resources by 2020.
Black Hills Energy also proposes to purchase the energy and renewable energy credits from EUI Development, LLC, the owner of the other 50 percent of the project.
The proposed project, which would be completed in 2012 if approved, would include 16 Vestas wind turbines.
