The employees of Tri-State’s 160-megawatt Pyramid Generating Station (Lordsburg, N.M.) were recently recognized by the state of New Mexico’s Environmental Department as a new member in its Environmental Leadership Program – among a handful of facilities, businesses and other organizations in the state that have shown exemplary diligence and commitment in reducing waste and protecting natural resources.

On Earth Day (April 22), Pyramid Station became a new Bronze Level member of the state’s Green Zia Environmental Leadership Program (GZELP) through its documented environmental efforts during the period of Oct. 2011 through Dec. 2012.

This pollution prevention program targets the processes or practices that generate waste and aims to reduce or eliminate waste at the source.

GZELP is a voluntary program for any type and size of organization implementing sustainable practices. Applicants must document environmental achievements and set future goals. Since its inception in 1999, more than 140 New Mexico organizations and business have participated in the program.

The Tri-State employees who have worked on the Environmental Leadership Program at Pyramid Station are Bill Hiss, combustion turbine foreman, Jason Offutt, combustion turbine maintenance coordinator, along with Will Castle, Derek Grimes and Henry Parra, who are all combustion turbine technicians.
