Gov. Bill Ritter, D-Colo., joined elected officials, energy industry leaders and community members to celebrate the opening of PPM Energy's 75 MW Twin Buttes Wind Power Project in Bent County, Colorado. The entire capacity of the Twin Buttes Wind Power Project has been contracted to Xcel Energy subsidiary Public Service Company Colorado for a period of 20 years.

Twin Buttes increases Colorado's in-state wind energy generation capacity by more than 25%, according to PPM Energy.

"To ensure more wind energy success stories like Twin Buttes, new electricity transmission projects are critically important," says Craig Cox, executive director, Interwest Energy Alliance. "The wind industry is working closely with Xcel Energy, the state government and other parties on proactive transmission planning."
