Pueblo’s Black Hills Energy ‘off-ramp’ panel to meet Thursday
Synopsis: A newly formed commission will study whether Pueblo can create its own municipal electric utility so it can break out of its 20-year franchise agreement with Black Hills Energy, a subsidiary of Black Hills Corporation, in 2020 will meet for the first time Thursday.
The seven-member Electric Utility Commission will convene at 2 p.m. in the city manager’s conference room at City Hall.
District 2 Councilman Larry Atencio, one of two co-chairmen appointed to serve on the commission from City Council, said Wednesday he expects the meeting to consist of introductions and getting an idea of what each member wants to get out of the commission.
