Market demands driving Xcel changes

Mesa County’s largest electricity provider is in the midst of a rate case filing with the state Public Utilities Commission that seeks to give customers more control over their energy use.

The filing is just one of several components of Xcel Energy’s “Our Energy Future” plan which aims to put Colorado at the forefront of utility policy, Alice Jackson told The Sentinel’s editorial board Thursday.

Jackson, Xcel’s regional vice president of Rates and Regulatory Affairs, said new solar offerings and a rate redesign that hinges on a new, interactive metering system will provide new renewable energy options without passing the cost on to all ratepayers.
