      Colorado solar power contributes to national record

      The nation this year is on pace to double the amount of solar power installed in 2015 — and Colorado is doing its part.

      That's according to a new study from GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association.

      The last quarter of the year is usually when the nation’s solar power market peaks in terms of new installations coming online, but this year more than 2 gigawatts — or more than 2,000 megawatts — worth of solar power panels were installed during the second quarter...

      That total gave Vestas 33 percent of the U.S. market in…

      US wind energy output hit record in '15, industry group says

      BRIGHTON, Colo. (AP) — Wind energy generated a record 191 megawatt-hours of electricity last year, enough for 17.5 million homes, an industry group said Tuesday.

      The American Wind Energy Association said wind produced 4.7 percent of the nation's electricity in 2015. Coal generated 33 percent and natural gas slightly less than that, the association said.

      The association released the statistics at a Vestas Wind Systems turbine plant in Brighton, Colorado, near Denver.

      Colorado farmers reap $9 million in payments from turbines

      Falling commodity prices have taken a big bite out of Colorado farm and ranch incomes, but lease payments from wind turbines are helping to cushion the blow for some rural landowners.

      Colorado landowners received $9 million in such lease payments last year, part of the $222 million that wind farms paid nationwide, according to the American Wind Energy Association, or AWEA.

      "That puts Colorado in the top 10 nationally," trade group spokesman Evan Vaughan said.

      Colorado regulators reject Xcel’s proposal to add solar power

      In an unusual move, state regulators on Wednesday verbally rejected a proposed agreement between Xcel Energy Inc. and three solar power developers that would have added up to 60 megawatts of “community solar” power plants in Colorado.

      The Colorado Public Utilities Commission (PUC) typically approves settlement agreements reached by parties in a dispute.

      "It’s infrequent," PUC spokesman Terry Bote agreed. "But it’s based on whether the settlements are in the public interests or not, and…
