Xcel tries to impress environmentalists, makes Colorado utility users pay for it
John Caldera’s latest opinion piece, Carbon Capture Doesn’t Fit in with Xcel’s Double-Dipping Energy Plan, call out Xcel’s COlorado Energy Plan. From Caldera’s article:
“Take the much touted “Colorado Energy Plan” (CEP) which includes shutting down coal-fired power plants in Pueblo and replacing them with wind and solar power.
Even the lingo is politically loaded virtue signaling. Xcel Energy, which runs the Comanche I and ll power plants, is “retiring” them early, the poor old obsolete dears. Fact is they are among the most technologically advanced, least polluting coal-fired plants in the world.
The real reason for their “retirement” is so Xcel can double bill us, ratepayers. They’ll still be charging us to depreciate the “old” plants and the new plants at the same time and making a profit from both.”
