In 2004, Colorado passed the first voter-led Renewable Energy Standard in the nation. The General Assembly has increased the standard three times since then, and Xcel Energy has met these requirements every year since its inception. It supports our bold, new vision to provide customers with 100% carbon-free electricity by 2050 and to reduce carbon emissions 80% by 2030 from the electricity that serves our customers, while keeping your bill as low as possible.

The 2020-2021 Renewable Energy Plan aims to advance Xcel Energy’s goal of satisfying Colorado’s growing energy needs in the most reliable, clean and affordable way possible. It proposes a two-year roadmap that continues to demonstrate leadership in transitioning to a more sustainable energy future, powered by less carbon-intensive fuel sources. The company considers the 2020-21 proposal to be a bridge plan that largely continues existing programs and retains many of the features approved in the 2017-19 Renewable Energy Plan.

This three-year roadmap was approved by the Colorado Public Utilities Commission in November 2016 as part of the largest global settlement in Xcel Energy history. Xcel Energy worked with 22 of 26 intervenors to settle the Renewable Energy, Phase II Electric Rate Case and Solar*Connect filings.
