Utility Energy Programs

Colorado's utilities offer a wide range of energy related programs. Select you utility from the list below to find out what programs are offered by your utility.

Xcel Energy Programs

Alternatively Fueled Vehicles
We can expect to see more AFVs on the road over the next several years-especially in metropolitan areas, where air pollution may be a serious problem and where fueling stations can be more conveniently located. Major U.S. automobile manufacturers currently produce a wide range of cars, trucks, buses and vans that run on natural gas and electricity. 
Contact: Your Account Representative, Xcel Energy, P.O. Box #840, Denver, CO 80201-9716  (303) 294-8402.

SiteWise from Xcel EnergySM brings you Energy Design Assistance with the objective of encouraging greater design team cooperation and integrated building system analysis for new construction projects.

Reduce your energy costs by improving the efficiency of your building's existing operating system without incurring capital expenses with Recommissioning brought to you by SiteWise from Xcel EnergySM. We'll even help you cover some of the costs associated with identifying and implementing ways your company can reduce peak electric demand and conserve energy. Recommissioning is an energy conservation program that gives you more control over your energy expenses by identifying system operating, control, and maintenance problems you may not even know exist. Eligibility: Recommissioning is available to large, Front-Range commercial and industrial customers who receive retail electricity from Xcel Energy. To qualify, your building must be a minimum of 75,000 square feet and have a minimum summer peak demand of 300 kW.
