Xcel Energy has proposed a new electric vehicle charging pilot for Minnesota customers that would eliminate a hurdle to signing up for EV rates — the need for a second meter. In addition to lower rates for charging done between 9 p. Paul Business Journal reports the utility will assist the customer in installing a new meter that can measure the home’s normal energy use as well as the vehicle charging. Previously, two separate meters were required. If approved by state regulators, the two-year program would launch next summer and could accommodate up to participants. Xcel offers a steep discount on the rates to charge electric vehicles, in exchange for customers shifting to off-peak hours. But the current program requires a second meter be installed, and the utility literature describing the process is not enticing.

Before we dive into how investors and analysts have reacted as of late, let’s take a quick look at its most recent earnings report in order to get a better handle on the important drivers.
DENVER – Two years after environmentalists battled Xcel Energy over renewable energy in Colorado, the utility giant’s one-time adversaries turned out Tuesday to praise the s of at least.
The program allows customers to subscribe to the full renewable energy benefits of low-cost solar energy produced in Colorado, giving them the flexibility to choose how much of their energy usage they wish to subscribe and how long a commitment they wish to make. We are excited to be able to offer this innovative choice to our customers that will leverage a very low cost, competitively bid solar resource that provides exceptional customer value for all customers,” said Dan Nygaard, vice president of customer solutions for Xcel Energy.
The project will feature approximately , solar panels with trackers that will follow the sun from east to west each day to maximize energy production and help lower the demand on Xcel Energy’s power plants during late-day energy-use peaks. We look forward to doing even more for the state. Final program pricing will combine the solar resource cost with other program costs, and will be announced later this year. The program is expected to be priced at a slight premium for participants to start, with an opportunity to save over time if fuel prices increase.

Facing broad opposition, HF never received a full vote by the MN House before the adjournment of the legislative session, and so it did not move forward. While technically there is language on the bill referring to a cap on how much Xcel could spend, it is meaningless because Xcel gets to decide what the cap is. The Senate Energy and Utilities Finance and Policy Committee amended the original bill language both before and during the bill’s March 27th, hearing , so that its members could justify advancing the bill on a vote in the face of overwhelming and broad opposition.
More than a month has gone by since the last earnings report for Xcel Energy Inc. (XEL – Free Report). Shares have added about % in that time frame, outperforming the market.
The Comanche power station consists of three units owned by Xcel Energy: The promised limitations are supposed to result in lower overall pollutants, even with the proposed third unit. As a consequence of the public fallout surrounding this project  , Xcel has acknowledged that it may never build another coal-fired power plant. Most of the investment was for the Comanche 3 plant, which is reported to go online later this year.
Company president David Eves attributed the retirement to “the fundamental economics of these technologies wind and solar. According to a report in the Denver Post, the retirement agreement involved more than a dozen parties, including environmental groups, independent power producers, and consumer advocates. Since coal for the plant comes from Wyoming’s Powder River Basin, the change will not directly affect production at Colorado mines.
As many as 90 fewer workers out of the currently employed will be displaced, but Xcel said it will try to find new jobs for displaced employees.

Once again, Xcel cited the attractive price of wind energy as a reason for the move. Courtenay Wind Farm, a megawatt project near Jamestown, N. RES would develop the project and then transfer ownership to Xcel Energy. Xcel cited the PTC as a key driver in its new wind plays, which is pretty interesting given what went down earlier this year. Now the company is emphasizing that it appreciates the PTC while also advocating the consumer renewable credit.
In a company blog , Xcel explained how that would work:
The municipal utility and Southwestern Public Service — a wholly owned subsidiary of Xcel Energy — announced the signing of a purchased-power contract providing megawatts of capacity and.
November 1, – The council approved year agreements with two companies, Renewable Energy Partners and ReneSola, for their proposed gardens. The agreements are for up to 1 million kilowatt-hours of electricity annually, including , kWh from Renewable Energy Partners and , kWh from ReneSola. One million kilowatt-hours is enough electricity for approximately Minnesota residential customers for one year, based on U.
Energy Information Administration estimates. Community solar gardens allow utility customers in Minnesota to support solar energy and save money on their electricity bills. Utilities hook up the gardens to their electric grids and credit the customers for the electricity generated by their portions of the gardens.
Customers can only subscribe to gardens in their home county or an adjacent county, per state law. Before the latest agreements, Minneapolis had already signed subscriber agreements for 24 separate gardens for an annual total of 7. The city required the developers to say how they plan to attract low-income subscribers as part of their requests for proposal.
The company would offer MPS a percent subscription at no cost and would offer the district another percent subscription at a cost, Staples wrote in a memo.

History[ edit ] Xcel Energy was built on three companies: Southwestern Public Service Co. The financial strain of creating this new enterprise soon overwhelmed him and he sold the franchise to W. Gillenwater, who named his utility the Roswell Electric Light Co. He later sold the company to an investment firm in Cleveland, Ohio, which already owned the Roswell Gas Co.
Byllesby began building his utility holding company across the Northwestern region of the US, he renamed it the Consumers Power Co. NSP’s system also extended east into Wisconsin, but because of utility ownership laws in that state, it was operated as an entity separate from the rest of the company. By , it had acquired most of the electric companies in northern and central Colorado.
What makes a successful utility
Wednesday, 27 June The MN Utility Locate Rodeo recognizes the profession of underground utility locating, a vital aspect of the damage prevention industry. Participants had the opportunity to test their craft, skills, and knowledge of utility locating in a friendly competition against their peers. Only utility locating technicians employed by a utility, contract locating, or private company, municipality, or other local government units were eligible to compete.
To honor Xcel Energy’s successful introduction of legislation to give itself a “blank check” for its anticipated Prairie Island nuclear power plant retrofit, the Institute for Local Self-Reliance and Community Power today released a video to tell the truth about what’s really in the “red box” that’s prevalent in Xcel’s widespread televised advertisements.
Cons Have you ever heard the saying if it looks good it is good? In the time I’ve worked here I have seen a move from meaningful challenges to a culture of pencil whipping and sweeping under the rug to meet goals which are useless to anyone except investors and are often times an injustice to rate payers who ultimately pay for superficial wants of management who know little of machinery but are very good at keeping appearances.
Also many of the reviews on here are from professionals and interns. Beware if you are a tradesman, all of the positives I’ve read on here do not apply to bargaining unit positions. Tools are sub-par, best work is contracted out and you are left with oil changes and sweeping the floor. Coaching a little league team does not count as previous leadership experience and a death by PowerPoint does not constitute training.
Ever wonder why veterans usually don’t apply for management jobs? They have real leadership experience and low tolerance for juvenile supervisors who stopped progressing as humans somewhere around their sophomore year.

Colorado Energy Plan is good in theory, terrible in reality Authors: The upfront cost of building and upgrading the two coal plants subject to early retirement is spread out decades into the future, on the expectation that the units, built in the s, would continue to produce electricity until the end of their useful life — 50 years or more. That is, customers will pay more. None of this is to mention the costs of wind and solar energy generation as envisioned by the Colorado Energy Plan.

Steven Winter Leave a comment Brief Overview: A review of the year-old federal coal leasing program is long overdue as lack of reform has failed to address climate change and has cost taxpayers billions of dollars. Coal Reforms from the Rockies How long does it take for a message to get from the Rocky Mountains to the halls of power in D.
Decision makers in D. Colorado groups including Clean Energy Action helped to initiate both reform campaigns, repeatedly warning state and federal regulators that, in addition to the devastating effects of climate change, the fiscal costs of inaction could rise to hundreds of millions — if not billions — of dollars. In both reform efforts, Clean Energy Action played a catalytic role. In , when the last review concluded, few understood the threat of global warming.
These laws require mining companies to provide adequate financial assurances that they will be sufficiently solvent to return mines to a usable or natural condition once mining at a site has ceased. Their insolvency threatens to leave mines, including one larger than the City of San Francisco , scarring the Wyoming prairie. According to a study from the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis that called for a moratorium on new coal leases, 22 of 26 coal sales since had only a single company bidding on publicly-owned coal.
As a result of lack of competition, taxpayers lost out on billions of dollars in tax revenue. The full cost of coal must reflect public health impacts from air pollution that damages the brains of our children, and the hearts and lungs of our families, as well as the disturbance of our lives and livelihoods from increased natural disasters and a changing climate.
