The TS Power Plant will provide electricity for Newmont Mining’s operations in northern Nevada.[1] In Oct. 2007, the Nevada Department of Environmental Quality issued a modified air permit for the plant. In June 2008, Newmont completed construction of the plant. Approximately half of the electricity produced by the plant will be used for Newmont's mining operations with the remainder going to Sierra Pacific Power.[2]
