Xcel Energy – Colorado


Colorado, a western state named for its red mountains and diverse landscape, is home to 5.6 million people. With regions of arid desert, lush river canyons, and the majestic Rocky Mountains, Colorado is a state that many choose for its sheer livability and unique quality of life. Denver, the capital of Colorado and its largest city, features a unique downtown area that’s unlike any other in the United States—particularly because it’s a mile above sea level!

Colorado is known for its plethora of outdoor activities spread over 41 state parks throughout the state, drawing over 82 million visitors per year. Whether you’re looking for year-round skiing, mountain climbing the Black Canyon of Gunnison National Park, hiking around Caribou Lake—Colorado has no shortage of embracing the breathtaking scenery and natural wonder.

Serving the energy needs of Colorado customers is Xcel Energy. As a company that serves over 3.3 million electric customers and 1.8 million natural gas customers across the country, Xcel has taken significant steps to ensure that clean energy is used, outlined in the company’s 2017 Corporate Responsibility Highlights.
