Colorado Integrated Solar Project

<BACK

NO.5-1-30


The Colorado Integrated Solar Project was a hybrid CSP/coal plant approach using parabolic-trough solar technology. A parabolic trough solar field provided thermal energy to produce supplemental steam for power generation at Xcel Energy's Cameo Station's Unit 2 (approximately 2 MWe equivalent) in order to decrease the overall consumption of coal, reduce emissions from the plant, improve plant efficiency, and test the commercial viability of concentrating solar integration. The plant was used for testing purposes until the coal plant was retired and the CSP plant was decommissioned.
