    Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association is a wholesale electric power supplier owned and governed by the 43 rural electric cooperatives that it serves across a 200,000 square-mile service territory covering regions of Colorado, Nebraska, New Mexico and Wyoming. Founded in 1952 by its member systems to provide a reliable, cost-based supply of electricity, Tri-State today provides affordable, reliable power to approximately 1.5 million consumers through a combination of owned baseload and peaking power plants that use coal and natural gas as their primary fuels, supplemented by purchased power, federal hydroelectricity allocations and renewable resource technologies.

    Tri-State is headquartered in Westminster, Colo., and employs more than 1,500 people throughout its four-state service area.The company's 1,300-megawatt Craig Station is Colorado's second largest power plant, generating responsible baseload power as well as nearly $500 million in local economic impacts for Craig, Moffat County and northwest Colorado.The plant provides over 300 jobs and purchases fuel from the nearby Colowyo and Trapper coal mines, which together support another 400 jobs and generate millions of dollars in economic output.
