Today Tri-State announced the retirement of its remaining New Mexico coal-fired power plant and its remaining Colorado coal plants and coal mine.
“We’re not just changing direction, we’re emerging as the leader of the energy transition,” said Duane Highley, Tri-State’s chief executive officer.
Several Colorado members of not-for-profit cooperative power supplier Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association expressed support today.
“As we say in Wyoming,” says Bob Brockman, “I would always be honored to ride the pasture with Jack Finnerty.”
Tri-State’s ratings remain classified as investment grade, and Tri-State maintains its strong financial position.
