Event Details

We have the opportunity to go on a tour of the Plains End natural gas-fired power plant south of Boulder off of Highway 93. The Plains End Generating Station is a 228MW reciprocating engine peaker plant that is capable of quickly ramping up in times of peak demand. More information about Plains End can be found here:

If you have a spot on the tour, we will be meeting at the small parking lot just north of the Engineering Center near the Discovery Learning Center at 1:15PM on Dec. 5th. We will then head to the Plains End facility south of Boulder where our tour is scheduled for 2PM. The tour will last about 45 minutes to an hour, so we should be back on campus around 3:30PM.

Note that we will meet for the tour right after Dec. 5th's Energy Talks which will cover the topic of natural gas-fired electricity generation.
