Glenwood Springs – Mitchell Creek Electric Transmission Line Rebuild

 

Public Open House 

We recently hosted a public open house to provide information about Xcel Energy’s plans to build a better, cleaner energy future by taking steps to create a smarter and stronger energy grid in your area and western Colorado, for a more secure energy supply. We provided information about the project and discussed the benefits it will bring to your community. We also explained the permitting requirements, planned construction methods and what the transmission line will look like upon completion.

Time: 5 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

Xcel Energy hosted a virtual town hall on May 25, 2021, to provide information about the electric transmission line rebuild prior to the submittal of Location and Extent permit applications to Garfield County and City of Glenwood Springs. View a copy of the presentation in English or Spanish.
