The City of Aspen is working toward powering its utility with 100-percent renewable energy. 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.

In 2014, City officials anticipate paying the District nearly half-a-million dollars for 9 million kilowatt hours of energy.
