Plant Operations

If you are reliable, have mechanical ability and like working with big equipment, a Plant Specialist role could be a good fit for you.

Xcel Energy Plant Specialists play an important role maintaining plant equipment, performing operational checks and making operating adjustments. They typically work onsite at one of our power plants to operate and maintain the boilers, turbines and other equipment that keep the lights turned on and homes running smoothly no matter the season. Plant Specialists are attentive to detail, function well in team settings, and often work rotating schedules that may include nights, weekends and holidays. If this sounds like you, Xcel Energy may have the position you seek.
