• LPEA Board indefinitely tables decision on Qualifying Facility waiver

    Cooperative will continue to review/analyze efforts for the benefit of members

    Following extensive member input and discussion, the La Plata Electric (LPEA) Board of Directors have confirmed tabling Resolution 2016-07 indefinitely.

    The resolution would have authorized LPEA to join in a filing with other cooperatives of a Qualifying Facility (QF) waiver, which would move the obligation to negotiate with a QF to LPEA’s primary power supplier, Tri-State Generation and Transmission (Tri-State).    

    LPEA, a Touchstone Energy Cooperative established in 1939, provides to its more than 30,000 members, with nearly 42,000 meters, safe, reliable electricity at the lowest reasonable cost, while being environmentally responsible. For additional information, visit www.lpea.coop.
