Publisher's description: The Governor's Energy Office (GEO)'s STAR project picks up where GEO's Renewable Energy Development Infrastructure (REDI) report left off. The STAR project provides an extended update, as well as modeling of work produced in earlier reports issued by the Governor's Office and the GEO. The project further delves into the changing energy resource landscape. The report provides a detailed analysis of ways in which policy-makers can plan for an optimal mix of demand side measures, supply side resources, and the transmission infrastructure necessary to deliver reliable electric power to a growing, and increasingly electrified state. With proper planning Colorado can meet the power needs of the future while protecting Colorado's natural heritage for future generations., Cover title., "A report of the Colorado Governor's Energy Office.", "December 2010"--Front cover verso., Includes bibliographical references (p. 166-172) and index.
When confronted with rising water costs and low crop yields, Bear River Ranch, located near Steamboat Springs, installed a hydro-mechanical system to power its center-pivot irrigation system. This system uses the power of falling water to directly drive and pressurize the center pivot; this eliminates the need for electricity and significantly reduces operating expenses. The turbine uses 126 feet of head and 560 gpm to produce the equivalent of 5.2 kW of power which drives the center pivot., The misspelling Hyrdopower is in title., Online resource; title from PDF caption (viewed March 2017)
