Boulder municipalization fact-checking: Rate parity with Xcel – Boulder Daily Camera

Posted on Oct 11, 2011

The facts: Ballot Issue 2C bouldercolorado.gov/files/Elections/2011/2011_Ballot_Measure_Certification.pdf asks voters to generally grant the city of Boulder the authority to create a municipal utility. But that authority has strings attached. The ballot language says Boulder can only create its own electric utility if the City Council “determines that it can acquire the electrical distribution system in Boulder and charge rates that do not exceed those rates charged by Xcel Energy at the time of acquisition.”
