A spokeswoman for Cheyenne Light, Fuel and Power says work on the new Cheyenne Prairie Generating Station is right on schedule at this point.

Construction of the new facility on Campstool Road got underway in May, and Sharon Fain says so far three combustion turbines have been delivered and set on their foundations. She also says about 90 percent of the underground utilities have been installed, and a variety of contracts for various aspects of work on the plant have been awarded.

Fain says the company still expects the plant to begin operations in October of 2014, as originally projected. She adds the work is also on budget so far..When completed,  Fain says the natural gas powered plant will provide enough electricity to serve up to 100,000 homes and will also protect customers against against swings in their electric bills.

She says when completed the plant will create somewhere between 10 and 13 local jobs, and she says 350 full time construction jobs have been created at the height of the construction of the new plant.
