Project Status


  • The Taelor Solar team is currently seeking a Special Use Permit from Morgan County that meets the County’s recently improved Solar and Battery Energy Storage System Zoning Regulations.
  • Our project team is working to complete Morgan County permitting by the early 2024.
  • Once permitted, construction is expected to start Q2 2025 with completion and operations in Q2 2027.
  • The Morgan County phase of the project will interconnect to a new 230kV switchyard on the existing Xcel Fort Lupton — Pawnee 230 kilovolt line. The Weld County phase of the project will interconnect to the new Xcel Colorado Power Pathway 345 kilovolt line.
  • The construction haul-route to deliver supplies to the site will be designed to prioritize safety and minimize impact to traffic on roads. The team is currently evaluating various alternatives with the County to ensure community concerns are addressed.
