Advanced Grid Intelligence & Security Filing

Providing Colorado customers with next-generation energy infrastructure

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 currently has a hearing scheduled for this proceeding to be held May 16-17, 2017 at 1560 Broadway, Suite 250 (Hearing Room A), Denver, Colorado 80202. Please visit (external website) for more information and updates or to submit comments to the Commission via email.

Energy Saving Tip

Set your hot water heater to no higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit. This isn't just energy smart—it's also safer, since it reduces the likelihood of accidental burns.

Break Ground, Not the Law

Always call 811 before digging in your yard to avoid hitting buried gas or electric lines. Not only is it the safe thing to do, but it's the law.
