Minneapolis / St. Paul Business Journal | Xcel aggressively fighting city’s move to create own utility


Xcel Energy said Friday it is forming an issue committee to oppose a ballot proposal in the city of Boulder, Colo., that would create a municipal power utility.

The committee is being formed “for the purpose of opposing the takeover of the electric system in Boulder and that it will also support the work of the Boulder Smart Energy Coalition Issue Committee chaired by David Miller,” Xcel said in a statement.

    Watch here as David Miller, from Boulder Smart Energy Coalition, refuses to name his donors and denies any connection or receipt of money from Xcel during questioning by Councilmember Macon Cowles, on the evening of August 2, 2011. in an article in the local paper Xcel denied donating to the group. To date, no light has been shed on the donors or amount of money BSEC received prior to August 16.
    I think it is a fair question for Xcel’s customers to ask: Is Xcel spending ratepayer money to “aggressively fight” the city of Boulder?
