Local elected officials have approved plans for the development of a 640-acre energy park on ranch land in northern Weld County, CO. The developer of the proposed Niobrara Energy Park told Weld County commissioners that he envisions a hybrid energy park, mixing old and new energy resources. The project would include 200 acres of solar panels, geothermal production, a natural gas-fired electric generating plant and possibly a super data center along the lines of ones developed in the Pacific Northwest for Facebook and Google. Located about 35 miles north of Greeley, CO, the park has been given a list of up to 50 possible uses, but the developer, Loveland, CO-based Harrison Resource Corp., said it was still unclear if it would be developed as one comprehensive plan or a number of separate projects on parts of the designated park land.
