Platte River’s New Headquarters:
Building a new headquarters will address many pressing needs:
Keeping Power Accessible and Affordable
- Considerable growth in retail customers and the resulting need for more energy
- Dramatic advances in energy production and transmission technology
- Significant changes in power industry regulatory requirements
To keep pace with advancements in our industry and to provide significant improvements to the community, we propose to construct a modern headquarters building on a redesigned campus. An updated headquarters will provide a consolidated home to currently separated work groups, and will accommodate future growth and technologies while providing the community with an easily accessible amenity that more accurately reflects its values.
This project will ensure 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 municipal utilities at the lowest wholesale rates in Colorado, and have factored costs for the new headquarters campus into its long-range infrastructure planning models. The models call for a forecasted annual rate increase of two percent through 2025, maintaining Platte River’s low-cost profile.
