PUC to review Xcel’s proposed tariff

The Public Utilities Commission (PUC) has set for hearing a request by Xcel Energy to implement a new rate structure for electric vehicle charging for large commercial and industrial customers.

Xcel filed a request on May 25 to implement a new, time-of-use tariff that would be available to large commercial and industrial customers charging their own electric vehicles or who provide a charging service to third parties. Xcel stated that the proposed tariff would not directly affect any other service or customer class.

The proposal aligns with Gov. Jared Polis’ Executive Order, issued in January of this year, to support widespread transportation electrification, as well as Senate Bill 19-077 which, in part, directs utilities to propose new electric vehicle charging rates for commercial and industrial customers.

PUC staff requested a hearing on the proposal to further investigate the reasonableness of the various components of the proposed rate structure, the robustness of the load data used to establish the rate, and to evaluate any potential cross-subsidization between customers who take service under the rate and those who don’t.

All documents associated with the proposal can be found in the PUC’s E-Filings system by entering 19AL-0290E in the Proceeding Number box.

Comments on the proposal may be filed via the PUC website at
