Letter: Thornton substation is key

Posted

As a business owner in Thornton, the approval of a new substation is very important to the families who rely on my business for their childcare needs, my employees and our collective economic health.

Power outages impact our ability to maintain schedules. When power quality is diminished, we need to replace equipment like air conditioners, refrigerators and computers, which can drive up costs.

Outages impact a business's ability to collect and track sales taxes.

A new substation will alleviate these concerns across the Thornton area. My location is close to I-25 and Thornton Parkway The substations closest to me are stressed as they serve the growing electrical needs of northeast Thornton. Simply put, a new substation there improves electric reliability for all of Thornton.

I look forward to this project moving forward quickly.
