"Xcel regional vice president Jerome Davis said in a letter Tuesday that during the five or more years it will take to form the utility, the company may have to discontinue the programs."
Yeah, from the same brain trust that was trying to rationalize raising rates on those who have chosen to install solar PV and send surplus power back into the grid. Xcel reaped the benefits of less need for installing power corridors and extra generating capacity during peak usage times, but surmised the extra power sent back into the grid was going over 'our transmission lines'. Without the electricity going through those transmission lines, they are pretty much worthless wires. Go ahead, discontinue the programs, adios, arrivadercci and good bye, don't let the door hit you on the way out.
