In May 2019, we submitted an electric regulatory rate review to the Colorado Public Utilities Commission (CPUC or Commission). The Commission issued its decision in Proceeding No. 19AL-0268E in February 2020, with new rates taking effect Feb. 25, 2020.

Colorado’s electric infrastructure must be improved and updated to maintain a clean, safe and reliable energy supply at the lowest cost possible. It’s vital to the quality of life, economic growth and future vitality of the state. With this rate review, Xcel Energy is requesting funding for completed and planned energy grid projects as well as other system investments that will improve operations and service to customers.
The Colorado Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) is responsible for reviewing and approving our rate reviews. The PUC consists of three individuals appointed by the governor and confirmed by the state senate for four-year terms. The CPUC ensures customers receive reliable, efficient, and safe service at reasonable rates and that our investors earn a fair return on their investment.
The Colorado Public Utilities Commission will oversee a thorough review of Xcel Energy’s operations and costs, including public participation hearings, comments from customer advocates and interested parties and evidentiary hearings before an administrative law judge. At the end of this process, the Commission will issue a decision that will set the amount that Xcel Energy can recover from electric rates for the time period. You can follow our rate case proceedings at the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies’ (DORA) website. Search for Proceeding No. 19AL-0268E.
