GE and the Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association have announced that the Colorado Highlands Wind project, located in northeastern Colorado, has been completed.

The 67 MW wind farm consists of 42 GE 1.6 MW turbines and is jointly owned by Alliance Power Inc. and GE Energy Financial Services.

Tri-State has a 20-year power purchase agreement to buy the electricity from the project, which is located on a 5,200-acre site in northeast Colorado's Logan County, within the service territory of Tri-State member co-op Highline Electric Association.

Colorado Highlands Wind is the third utility-scale renewable energy facility from which Tri-State receives all of the electrical output and renewable energy credits. In 2010, the wholesale power supplier began purchasing the electricity generated at the 51 MW Kit Carson Windpower Project in eastern Colorado, as well as from the 30 MW Cimarron Solar Facility in northeastern New Mexico.
