Colorado Approves Xcel Plan To Retire Coal, Shift To Renewables And Storage


The Public Service Company of Colorado will retire 660 megawatts of coal and replace it with more than 1,800 megawatts of wind and solar. Xcel Energy's clean Energy Plan would see the utility close 660 MW of coal-fired generation a decade earlier than scheduled and shift to renewable resources. 

Under the plan, Xcel will close units 1 and 2 at the Comanche Generating Station in Pueblo and invest $2.5 billion in renewable energy and battery storage. The utility expects the plan to save ratepayers $213 million.
