PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) - Black Hills Energy officially has added 34 wind turbines to its power supply in Colorado.

The Rapid City, South Dakota-based utility cut the ribbon Friday on the Peak View Wind Project 40 miles south of Pueblo.

The Pueblo Chieftain reports (https://bit.ly/2mDqCpV) the new wind turbines put the utility closer to meeting a state requirement of getting 30 percent of its electricity from renewable sources.

The wind turbines can produce 60 megawatts at full production. That’s enough electricity for 28,000 homes.

The wind turbines are located next to 14 others owned by Black Hills Energy.

Black Hills Energy has 94,000 customers in the Pueblo region.
