The U.S. Energy Information Administration says the highest level of power in Wyoming’s Rocky Mountain region is at the Sawtooth Mountain Power Plant in eastern Wyoming.
The EIA says the Sawtothe Peak output at the plant reached 6,827 megawatts of electricity last week.
That’s up from the previous record of 5,917 megawatts at the facility in October.
The plant is expected to be back to normal operations sometime next week.
Wyoming’s highest recorded output was 1,892 megawatts in August, according to EIA.
That was the highest-ever recorded output in Wyoming, and the highest in the state since February.
The state is the highest rated in the nation for coal-fired power generation, with an average rate of 6,532 megawatts.
The EIA’s new report shows Wyoming is among the top three coal-producing states.
