EP02: Coal Mine
Aspen/Snowmass isn’t just a winter resort. We also develop clean energy projects. Our three megawatt coal mine methane plant makes as much electricity as we use annually—from an otherwise wasted resource.
Aspen Skiing Company recently partnered with the Elk Creek coal mine, Holy Cross Energy, and Vessels Coal Gas on a $5.5 million investment to capture waste methane vented from a coal mine in neighboring Somerset, Colorado to generate carbon negative electricity. The power generated from this project will produce as much energy as ASC uses annually.
