What do the jobs created cost Colorado ratepayers?
Politicians in the South Slope Pumped Storage plant's districts claim 22 jobs will be added in Fremont County. The plant adds $1.6 billion to the $0.8 billion cost of the wind generators it purports to be essential for. House Bill 11-1083 gives the public utility commission and the power companies the means to pass this costs along to Colorado electricity customers. The price tag to Colorado ratepayers for a plant that produces no energy, works out to $72 million dollars per job created.
