Blue Mountain Energy Deserado Mine
Deseret Power is a regional generation and transmission cooperative meeting the power requirements of its six member retail systems, and selling surplus power to municipalities, power marketers and other wholesale electric systems in five states.
Beginning with a 25.1% interest in the Hunter II power plant, Deseret has grown into an integrated power producer in Utah. With corporate offices in South Jordan, Utah, Deseret owns 223 miles of transmission lines and 550 MW of generation. Deseret's primary generating resource, the Bonanza Power Plant is consistently ranked in the top environmentally clean coal fired plants in the U.S. and was the number one plant for availability in 2001 and 2002.
As a cooperative, Deseret is owned by its six member systems: Bridger Valley Electric, Dixie Power, Flowell Electric, Garkane Energy, Moon Lake Electric, and Mt. Wheeler Power. Deseret's cooperative organization, combined with its vertical integration, positions Deseret to provide member/owners, partners and customers of all sizes competitive and stable power rates.
