Xcel Energy invites you to tour its King plant electric generation facility which is celebrating its 50th operational anniversary on September 6, 2018. King plant underwent a significant rehabilitation in the early 2000s as part of Xcel Energy's MERP (Metro Emissions Reduction Project).
This plant was the model for a successful and growing peregrine falcon restoration effort, as the first plant in the nation to place a falcon nest box on its stacks.
Please join us for a tour so that we can share with you how Xcel Energy is always delivering clean, reliable and safe electricity along with a whole lot of community involvement.
After your tour, Xcel will have an Anniversary celebration going on with the Tot Boss and Steven D's food trucks & refreshments. They will have a short program at 1:45 with a Chamber Ribbon Cutting at 2:00 – you are welcome to join us for all of the festivities!
