At Xcel Energy, we’re working hard to develop even more efficient and responsible sources of energy. However, we’re also working to make our operations more efficient, too.
The Environmental Protection Agency, along with The Climate Registry and the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions, presented us with a 2016 Climate Leadership Award. The award was to honor our commitment to clean energy and excellence in greenhouse gas management.
We achieved a 20 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from 2005 to 2014. We did this by implementing a strategy that increased the use of renewable energy and energy efficiency programs, while retiring and repowering coal-fueled generating plants with natural gas. We’re now on track to reach a 30 percent reduction in carbon dioxide emissions by 2020.
Since 2008 our Sustainable Facilities Program has helped to reduce the environmental impacts of our buildings:
Rather than crank up your heat in the winter, keep your thermostat at a moderate level and bundle up. (Who doesn't love fuzzy slippers?)
