Pueblo’s Energy Future June 26, 2018 Town Hall
Featuring: Dan Hodges of Colorado Association of Municipal Utilities
When: Today, Tuesday, June 26, 2018, Pueblo’s Energy Future (PEF) will host the third Town Hall in our speaker series. It will take place from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM at the Rawlings Library.
Our Third Speaker Series will feature Colorado Association of Municipal Utilities(CAMU). CAMU’s executive director Dan Hodges will present information about Colorado’s municipal electric utilities. Consider attending to learn how a muni might work for Pueblo. It could be a good fit, and also a practical route to Pueblo’s independence from Black Hills Energy.
County Commissioner Terry Hart and David Cockrell will precede CAMU’s presentation by briefing the community on the Xcel Colorado Energy Plan’s 120-Day Report and the Economic Impact Analysis Report that was just filed yesterday, June 20, 2018, by the Public Service Company of Colorado. This report pertains to proceeding number 16-0396E, contained within is their plan for the potential closure of Comanche 1 & 2, and the replacement generation, construction, maintenance, economic, and environmental factors that will take place. You can read the entire report by clicking this link or by visiting the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies Website (DORA).

Why is this taking place?
On September 25, 2017, by Resolution No. 13790, the Pueblo City Council declared the City of Pueblo’s intent to terminate its Franchise Agreement with Black Hills on August 10, 2020, and to create a municipal utility, if a due diligence feasibility study showed that municipalization was an economically viable option. They took this measure to act in the long-term interest of our citizens, rate-payers, and businesses. Pueblo’s Energy Future has focused on hosting a series of Town Hall Events focused on Bringing Power Home.
Would the benefits of Pueblo breaking away from Black Hills Energy outweigh the costs? What would be involved in the battle to separate? How long might it take? Could a city with no experience run an electric utility?
