A good chunk of that energy will come from a new hydropower facility in Ridgway, Colorado. If all goes according to plan, the City will start getting power from the facility on February 20th. Aspen’s one of two entities purchasing power from the plant. Mike Berry is with the Tri-County Water Conservancy District, the organization running the plant. He spoke with Aspen Public Radio's Marci Krivonen.</p><p></p> Tue, 11 Feb 2014 18:00:09 +0000 Marci Krivonen 14136 at http://aspenpublicradio.org Hydro Project in West-Central Colorado Will Provide Aspen with Power
