Public comment needed at the Public Utilities Commission on Xcel's 'Clean Heat Plan' through March 2024

The PUC’s Xcel Clean Heat Plan proceeding provides a new opportunity to transition away from dependence on polluting fossil methane gas by making efficient electric heat pumps more affordable for thousands of people, but Xcel’s proposal falls far short of Colorado’s new Clean Heat standard AND raises customer rates to pay for costly new gas experiments like “hydrogen blending”, “recovered natural gas” and “certified natural gas.”  

To learn more about the Xcel Clean Heat Plan, please watch the Physicians for Social Responsibility webinar from November 2023, co-hosted with the Colorado Renewable Energy Society, here
