AEHI (Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc.) executives visited Colorado last week to meet with a number of key county and state leaders to ascertain the support for a combination nuclear and solar power plant in Pueblo County. The trip also included a review of the property by a nuclear site expert to determine suitability.
Colorado currently does not have an operating nuclear plant but has a strong commitment to clean energy sources to address Climate Change using renewables, but base load power is primarily provided by coal plants. Therefore, the state is a prime candidate for nuclear to replace the aging coal plants to fully support their commitment to addressing Climate Change.
AEHI CEO, Don Gillispie, said, " We were very encouraged by the supportive remarks from businessmen, labor leaders, politicians and members of the state's administration. They clearly understand that nuclear plants not only create clean power necessary to help with environmental challenges, but low cost, reliable energy to stabilize the electric grid while creating thousands of
high paying jobs."
