Holcomb Station Expansion Project

In August 2005, Sunflower and Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association announced an agreement that would result in the construction of two new coal-fired power plants at Holcomb. On May 4, 2009, a compromise was struck between Sunflower and the State of Kansas to allow one 895-MW coal plant to be constructed.

Sunflower has made available the results of an economic impact study that describes the short and long-term benefits that would have resulted from the construction of the original plants. For more information concerning the compromise, visit the Holcomb Expansion website.
