Public Hearing for Xcel’s Rate Increase

Thursday, November 20th, 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Public Utilities Commission, Hearing Room A
1560 Broadway, Denver, CO 80202

Xcel is asking to pour a billion dollars into fossil fuel infrastructure, which is completely incompatible with a stable climate.

Colorado will feel the effects of an unstable climate through  dramatically increased wildfires, reduced water availability for agriculture,  flooding and other extreme weather events. These are real impacts that Coloradans are already experiencing.

Making these investments further commits us to burning fuels for decades.

Cost for wind, solar, energy efficiency and storage continue to plummet which makes new investments in long term fossil fuel infrastructure absurd.

New Capital Investments Xcel is Requesting
  • $ 2.04B for new capital investments:
    • $1.1B of production investment;
      • $ 950M for CACJA (Clean Air Clean Jobs Act of 2010)
      • $ 175M for other plants
    • $251.8M of transmission investment;
    • $470M of distribution investment; and
    • $187.6M of other types of capital investment.
