Our products and services differ based on state. Please select your state (or the state you're interested in) from the list to the left.
Why do our products and services differ based on state? Because our business is regulated by state. We have regulated operations in eight Western and Midwestern states. The different regulatory body for each state we serve determines what products and services we deliver in that state.
Xcel Energy recognizes that it is in our best interest to encourage a broad base of supplier relationships. Utilizing diverse suppliers contributes to the economic growth and expansion of the communities we serve. Our policy is to offer these businesses the opportunity to compete in Xcel Energy’s procurement for products and services.
Also, Xcel Energy develops and strengthens business relationships with diverse suppliers by:
• Conducting outreach efforts to seek, identify and encourage supplier diversity in our procurement processes;
• Facilitating alliances and partnering;
• Educating businesses about our procurement and business processes;
• Identifying and encouraging subcontracting (tier two) opportunities with major suppliers when direct participation is not possible.
Xcel Energy recognizes several business class definitions of the federal government and other certifying agencies in its Supplier Diversity Program. Click on the topics below for further information.
