2017 Colorado Energy Plan


Colorado 2017 Renewable Energy Plan

Transitioning the state to a more sustainable energy future

We all share the goal of satisfying Colorado’s growing energy demands in the most reliable, clean and affordable way possible. Today, about 22 percent of Colorado’s energy supply comes from renewable sources—and we remain on track to surpass the state’s 30 percent renewable energy standard by 2020.

Our 2017 Renewable Energy Plan proposes a three-year roadmap to continue providing the clean energy options that our customers want and value, in an economical way, while ensuring ongoing compliance with Colorado’s standard.

In an August 15 filing with the Colorado Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), Xcel Energy and 22 of 26 intervenors agreed, in total or in part, on a global settlement on three recent Xcel Energy filings. Those included the company’s Phase II Electric Rate Case, Solar*Connect, and the 2017 Renewable Energy Plan. On November 9, 2016, the CPUC approved this settlement. The decision will allow us to give our customers more control over their energy choices, will bring more renewable and carbon-free energy to Colorado through the use of new technologies, and provide affordable and reliable energy to further power the state’s economy.
