Colorado's General Assembly passed Senate Bill 07-100 upon recommendation of the 2006 Transmission Task Force on Transmission Reliability Infrastructure. In its Nov. 1, 2006 report, the task force recognized that "Colorado's ability to ensure continued affordable, reliable electricity and to build a vibrant economy depends on sufficient transmission capability" and "today the system is strained and, if current trends continue, there will not be adequate transmission to meet the needs."
The task force made a number of recommendations: develop the transmission infrastructure necessary to create a robust and reliable transmission system to meet Colorado's future energy needs; increase government involvement with organizations like the Colorado Coordinated Planning Group (CCPG) to focus on transmission activities throughout the state; and, identify renewable generation resource development areas throughout the state.
Senate Bill 100 requires electric utilities that are subject to rate regulation by the Colorado Public Utilities Commission to file the biennial plan each year by October 31. The plan must consist of the following:
SLV power line headed back to drawing board
Support for San Luis Valley line isn't powering down
Xcel is out, but transmission line is not
Xcel likely to drop SLV solar, transmission line proposal
San Luis Valley Power
Colorado PUC reaffirms approval of San Luis Valley power line sought by Xcel, Tri-State
