      According to this, http://www.windpoweringamerica.gov/... , Colorado has considerable wind resources.  The state's position on the dry side of the mountains means it has good solar potential also.  

      Of course the power company needs to convert to natural gas burners anyway, to provide backup for the rare windless night.
