Wolf Creek Ski Area Goes Solar!

It’s a busy Spring Break week at Wolf Creek Ski Area in Southern Colorado; eight chairlifts are busily spinning full of skiers from Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Colorado. The anomaly is the source of power that makes the ski area tick along. Unlike all other ski areas, the energy used is generated by the sun! The entire operation, lifts and buildings, came on line with the Penitente Solar Project, this November 2017 and will continue for many years into the future. The expected operational lifetime of the project is over 25 years…  Full Press Release.
