Commissioners urge Governor Hickenlooper to support Natural Gas Facility on Western Slope

The Board of Mesa County Commissioners signed a letter on Tuesday, urging Governor Hickenlooper to support building Xcel's new natural gas electricity facilities on the Western Slope to help create opportunities for economic prosperity in the rural areas of Colorado.

Having the facilities located on the Western Slope would create permanent jobs while creating local demand for local energy projects.

Additionally, locating a facility near the source of Colorado's largest dry gas reserves reduces the potential for methane leakage and lowers transportation costs by using local gas.
