Going into operation in summer 2016, the Comanche Solar project, near Xcel’s Comanche substation, would be Colorado’s largest solar farm and one of the biggest in the nation. It will supply Xcel Energy with power from more than 450,000 photovoltaic modules that will track the sun as it rises and sets to soak up power during the company’s peak demand times. The cost is estimated at $200 million.
