DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Public Utilities Commission will take public comment Monday on Xcel Energy's proposed Renewable Energy Standard compliance plan.
Colorado was the first state in the nation to adopt a standard by a vote of the people.
After four consecutive years of failing in the legislature, the measure was taken to the ballot through a citizen's initiative in 2004.
Amendment 37 created a renewable standard for investor-owned utilities to be achieved by 2015.
Amendment 37 also established net metering and interconnection standards for major utilities and programs for solar generation.
