Xcel Energy hosting public open houses in Aurora and Parker for proposed transmission line project

Xcel Energy is hosting three public meetings on the proposed Pawnee-Daniels Park 345 kilovolt (kV) transmission line project to gain input on preliminary alternative routes (as well as the existing transmission corridor) and answer questions from landowners and interested stakeholders. The meetings will include detailed maps that display the alternative routes, as well as experts who can discuss project need, the local siting process, construction, engineering, environmental and other transmission-related issues. Please stop by anytime to provide your comments on the project. No formal presentation is scheduled.

About the project
The proposed Pawnee-Daniels Park transmission line project consists of a new double-circuit 345 kilovolt (kV) transmission line between Xcel Energy’s Pawnee Substation near Brush, Colo., and the Daniels Park Substation south of the Denver metro-area. The metro-area portion of the project includes Arapahoe and Douglas Counties, City of Aurora and Town of Parker (see map).

The 125-mile project is part of the company’s Senate Bill 07-100 portfolio of transmission plans and is a critical component of the Colorado long-range transmission plan. The project will allow for the interconnection and delivery of new generation resources, including renewable energy to Front Range customers to meet new load growth and improve system reliability.

The Colorado Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) approved a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity application for the project on April 9, 2015. Xcel Energy is reviewing preliminary routes, including using company owned existing right of way.
