The plant will be built near Xcel's Commanche Generating Station
southeast of Pueblo. The plant could begin operation by late 2009.

Pueblo is expected to reap strong economic benefits from the
decision. More than 250 (m) million dollars could be spent on construction with about one-thousand workers needed during the building phase.

The company plans to hire 40 additional full-time employees to
operate the plant. The plan is still awaiting approval from the Colorado Public Utilities Commission.
