Keeping power accessible and affordable

For nearly 50 years, Platte River Power Authority has consistently and safely delivered reliable, environmentally responsible and financially sustainable energy and services to its owner communities of Estes Park, Fort Collins, Longmont and Loveland. In recent decades, multiple factors have influenced Platte River’s operations, including:

  • Considerable growth in retail customers and the resulting need for more energy
  • Dramatic advances in diverse energy resources and transmission technology
  • Significant changes in power industry regulatory requirements
To keep pace with advancements in the industry and to provide significant improvements to the community, Platte River built a modern headquarters on its redesigned campus. The updated headquarters now provides a consolidated home to previously separated work groups and will accommodate future growth and advancing technologies.

This project ensures Platte River can capitalize on new technology and provide staff the resources they need to operate efficiently for decades to come. Platte River currently provides power to its owner community utilities at the lowest wholesale rates in Colorado.
