Rocky Mountain Power’s Huntington and Hunter plants have received Generation Knowledge Service Plant Operational Excellence Awards from Navigant, an industry consulting services firm. The awards recognize coal-fueled and combined-cycle power plants that have demonstrated excellence in cost and operational management, as well as improved performance and reliability.
