The energy industry is undergoing significant change, from a centralized, one-way delivery model to a system of distributed resources that introduce two-way power flows. At the same time, our customers are becoming increasingly interested in new technologies like smart home applications, battery storage, private solar, and electric vehicles. We are listening to customers and providing new programs to meet their evolving needs.
Advanced Grid Intelligence and Security (Advanced Grid), is a long-term strategic initiative that will vastly improve power reliability, reduce power outages, make service smarter, integrate increasingly clean energy onto the grid, and empower customers with more information to control and track their energy use.
Xcel Energy is requesting a Certificate of Public Convenience & Necessity (or CPCN) for this filing. State regulators will review it to determine if the efforts outlined in our proposal are both needed and in the public interest. The role of state regulators is to ensure energy providers continue providing safe, reliable, adequate, and efficient energy services to customers on just, reasonable, and non-discriminatory terms.
The Colorado Public Utilities Commission is hosting a Public Comment Forum as part of this proceeding. This hearing will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2017 from 4-6 p.m. at 1560 Broadway, Suite 250 (Hearing Room A), Denver, Colorado, 80202.
