Xcel plans to move a combustion turbine from an existing facility to the new Quay County Generating Station. The new plant will be built adjacent to the Campbell Street Substation in north Tucumcari. The turbine will be used primarily as a standby source of power if service on the transmission line is interrupted.
The substation will also be expanded with the new plant. The plant is expected to be operational by 2013.
