Customer Support

Transportation Electrification Plan

Colorado is one of the top states in the country for electric vehicle (EV) adoption, and Xcel Energy is proud to partner with many others to achieve the state’s ambitious clean transportation goals, including having 940,000 EVs on the road by 2030. Xcel Energy’s transportation vision is complementary to the state’s vision – partnering with others, we want to enable one out of five vehicles in the areas we serve to be electric by 2030, leading to cleaner air and billions of dollars in customer savings. By 2050, we will provide the infrastructure and energy to run all vehicles in our service area with carbon-free electricity or other clean energy, as part of our vision to become a net-zero energy provider. Today, plugging in with Xcel Energy’s clean, affordable energy is the equivalent of about $1 per gallon or less when charging at home during off-peak hours.

Transportation Electrification Programs Rider

The Transportation Electrification Programs Adjustment (TEPA) supports these efforts. The rider appears on monthly bills under “Electricity Charges” as "Trans Elec Plan". Every October, Xcel Energy – Colorado is required to file a TEPA request with the Colorado Public Utilities Commission. See the “TEP Rider” tab below for more information.

In accordance with Decision No C21-0017 in Proceeding No. 20A-0204E, Xcel Energy—Colorado agreed to provide 60/90-day notice to interested stakeholders of material changes to the Transportation Electrification Plan portfolios.

Under the 60-day notice, any proposal to add a new program or product, including innovation projects, or to change technical assumptions or eligibility requirements, requires the company to notify interested stakeholders, after which the stakeholders have 30 days to respond. The company then has 30 days to consider comments and make its decision.

When proposing to discontinue programs or products, the company will issue notice of discontinuance in a 90-day notice to interested stakeholders after which the stakeholders have 30 days to respond. Xcel Energy will then have 60 days after the deadline to consider the comments received and make a final decision on its proposed discontinuance.

Energy Saving Tip

Energy-efficient appliances and light bulbs may cost a bit more up front, but they can save big money over the life of the product. Plus, some energy-efficient equipment may be eligible for rebates to offset the initial cost.

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.
