If approved, Boulder would discontinue efforts to establish a local utility and remain customers of Xcel Energy.
The 20-year franchise agreement between Xcel and the City would create clean generation and innovative grid projects, establish carbon emission caps and target collaborative efforts on Colorado renewables and regulations.
A public hearing on Aug. 20 may determine if the agreement will go on the November ballot.
Boulder City Council is asking for input from the community. Residents can provide feedback in the following ways:
- Email City Council members
