POWER PLANT SALE. Central Maine Power Co. has agreed to
sell its hydroelectric, fossil and biomass power plants totaling 1,185-MW of generating capacity to FPL Group, the holding company...
Gas, now a subsidiary of DTE Energy. The contract called for the partnership to build a facility that would provide 17 MW of electricity to the airport as well as hot water and chilled water for heating and cooling.
Denver International Airport may not have its own power plant, but the airport now has access to five sources of transmission line power, giving it redundant power supply unmatched at any other airport in the world. Just this past July, Xcel Energy of Denver placed into service its Green Valley switching station and a 40-mile-long, 230-kilovolt transmission line from its Fort St. Vrain Generating Station near Platteville. Xcel said the design and engineering of the new transmission line and switching station does not guarantee 100 percent reliability, but the project does greatly increase its options in the event of emergencies.
