Meet Pueblo’s Energy Providers
Black Hills Energy, the electric utility that serves most of the City and County of Pueblo, retired coal generation in Colorado in 2012 and boasts one of the cleanest generation fleets in the state. Black Hills Energy’s proposed Colorado Clean Energy Plan, now pending review by the Colorado Public Utilities Commission, creates a path for achieving a 90% reduction in GHG emissions by 2030, resulting in 79% of customers’ electricity being generated by carbon-free sources by 2030.
San Isabel Electric Association (SIEA) is a member of Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association. As a member, SIEA and its members will benefit from Tri-State’s clean energy transition outlined in its Responsible Energy Plan. By 2024, 50% of the energy members like SIEA use will come from renewables, and Tri-State is targeting an 80% reduction in emissions associated with wholesale electricity sales in Colorado by 2030 relative to a 2005 baseline.
Xcel Energy is the natural gas provider to Pueblo, promoting natural gas in a low carbon future by reducing methane and carbon emissions. Additionally, Xcel Energy is recognized as a national leader in clean power according to industry rankings. Xcel Energy Colorado is committed to providing 80% carbon free electricity by 2030 with an overall goal to provide 100% carbon free electricity by 2050. The Pueblo area plays a vital role in meeting those goals as host for multiple solar and battery storage projects.
