Page 2 New Generating Plant Needed Golden Spread Electric Cooperative has filled with the Texas Public Utility Commis- sion a notice of intent to apply for a certificate of convenience and necessity for construction of a new 400 megawatt generating plant. Scheduled for  opera- tion in early 1998, the plant would consist of four 100 megawatt, simple cycle gas turbine powered generating units. Natural gas will be used as the primary fuel. A final site selection has not been made, but two preferred sites are currently under consideration. One site is located in Moore Coun- ty south of Sunray, and the other site involves properties in Yoalaun and Gaines Counties east of Den- ver City. Approval by the Texas Utility Commission of the notice intent will only give Golden Spread the right to file an application for a certificate of convenience and necessity, which is the authoriza- tion needed before the project Don&apos;t lose your SUMMER TAN Come tan at The Nook Oct.

In its filing, Golden Spread advised the Commission that it also intends to solicit proposals from the other utilities and independent power suppliers for both new capacity and demand side control options. The solicitation will be made in about three months and will include a request for pur- chased power or other supply op- tions. Golden Spread currently purchases wholesale power from Southwestern Public Service Com- pany and from West Texas Utilities Company. SPS' 1993 load and capacity resource forecast, which includes the Golden Spread loads, shows a need to construct 486 megawatts of new gas turbine generating capacity to serve area loads. Golden Spread President Robert W. Bryant said, "Our proposal does not duplicate any ex- isling generating facilities. It simp- ly means that SIS can defer the construction of additional generat- hag plants on its system, and that wig benefit SIS retail consumers." Golden Spread's member systems are Bailey County Electric Cooperative (Muleshoe), Deaf Smith Electric Cooperative (Hereford), Greenbelt Electric Cooperative (Wellington), Lamb County Electric Cooperative OAt- tefield), Lighthouse Electric Cooperative (Floydada), Midwest Electric Cooperative (Roby), North Plains Electric Cooperative (Perryton), Rita Blanca Electric Cooperative (Dalhart), South Plains Electric Cooperative (Lub- beck), Swisher Electric Coopera- tive (Tulia) and Tri-County Electric Cooperative (Hooker, Ok- lahoma).
