Xcel Energy issued another energy alert late Friday evening, after it discovered a new problem at the Tolk Generating Station outside of Muleshoe. It is what Xcel Energy calls a tube leak at the Tolk Generating Station and that is the same station that caused the need for electricity conservation last month. It took four days to complete those repairs.
