The Boulder Daily Camera reported Sunday that the utility filed its request with the PUC after saying the project was finished. The 2008 project in Boulder is helping the utility see what a modern energy grid that distributes traditional and renewable energy looks like.
PUC officials ruled earlier this year that Xcel could recoup $27.9 million of its costs but that an additional $16.5 million could not be recouped until the utility showed it had completed the project.
