Learning valuable skills at Cooperative Youth Leadership Camp

The annual Cooperative Youth Leadership Camp, sponsored in part by Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association, brought together nearly 100, 16 to 18-year-olds at Glen Eden Resort near Steamboat Springs, Colorado. From July 17-22, kids were given the opportunity to learn about the electric cooperative business model through educational sessions and activities. To participate, students from Colorado, Wyoming and Kansas completed an application and review process determined by their local co-op, which pays all costs for those elected to attend.

Western Fuels-Colorado, LLC, has changed its name to Elk Ridge Mining and Reclamation, LLC.

Elk Ridge Mining and Reclamation is a wholly-owned subsidiary of wholesale electric power cooperative Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association, Inc.

Since forming in 1992, the organization now named Elk Ridge Mining and Reclamation has operated New Horizon Mine near Nucla, Colorado. New Horizon Mine supplies fuel to Tri-State’s Nucla Station. The organization has operated Colowyo Mine near Meeker, Colorado, since 2011 and currently supplies coal to Tri-State’s Craig Station and has sold coal into the market.
