For those who are in need of some handy Tri-State reference documents — such as major highlights of 2011, a business profile with production data on the generation fleet, transmission system and energy sales figures, or an updated system map depicting all of the association’s major sources of generation — they can all be found on Tri-State’s external Web site.
To view these reference documents, go to Tri-State’s Web site, select News Center from the tabs at the top of the home page, click on media kit from the drop-down list and scroll down until you see the aforementioned documents.
Tri-State recently closed the books on another successful and productive year with most of the year-end numbers reflecting solid results in 2011. Total energy sales were up nearly 3 percent with approximately 19.4 million megawatt-hours reported last year compared to just under 18.9 million megawatt-hours sold in 2010. The G&T increased its total assets in 2011 by more than 10 percent, climbing to $4.18 billion last year, compared to $3.79 billion in 2010.
The association’s total generating resources increased more than 5 percent in 2011, due primarily to a marked increased in contracted resources from the Western Area Power Administration (an abundance of hydropower available for sale) and Basin Electric Power Cooperative (additional sales coinciding with the commercial startup of Dry Fork Station).
