Post No. 50 - Xcel's SmartGridCity: Still Not Over

As I suggested in my most recent post, Xcel's victory at the Colorado Public Utilities Commission is my no means final.

While a PUC administrative law judge ruled that Xcel should be allowed to recoup approximately $45 million in installation costs from retail ratepayer -- about three times the company's original estimate -- administrative appeals to the full commission have been filed Colorado's Office of Consumer Counsel and two other parties. I do not yet have the filings, but their appeals are summarized here.

So the saga of what has been a smart grid poster child -- on way or the other -- continues.
