Gadsby Plant in Utah to Expand

LCG, Feb. 6, 2002--Growing demand for power in Utah caused the Utah Public Service Commission to approve an expansion of the Gadsby Power Plant, close to Salt Lake City.

Utah Power plans to begin work next week on an $80 million, 120-megawatt expansion of the gas-fired plant. The company wants to have the upgrade completed by summer, when demand should hit its annual peak.

The expansion of the existing plant was seen as the best way to avoid wholesale power price surges on the open market, and approved by Utah's Committee of Consumer Services as well as the Division of Public Utilities.

The PSC chairman, Stephen Mecham, noted that the cost of building the expansion is not guaranteed to be repaid through customer bills. He said, "when they go to recover the costs in a future rate case the company will have to show the costs it incurred were reasonable."
