Stanley Consultants assisting utility push for carbon reduction
Colorado Springs Utilities is taking steps to achieve an 80 percent reduction in carbon by 2030. As part of that initiative, Stanley Consultants is designing temporary natural gas generation to enable retirement of the coal-fired Drake power plant while maintaining electric reliability. As the utility completes modernization of its power delivery system in parallel, these natural gas units will be relocated and placed into service backing up new renewable generation assets and ensuring clean and reliable power for its customers.
