A careful read of Xcel's statements reveal they are not promising to do anything.
Now we have Colorado's governor, legislature, public utility commission and power utility Xcel all lined up and ready to roll over the people of Colorado.

The good news is that the fracking-killing Proposition 112 did not pass, but the bad news is that it got 43% of the votes, which in political terms is a lot. Let-wing politicians see this near victory as a mandate for change. The ugly news is that the new Governor is a radical green and the Democrats now control both houses in the legislature. This likely adds up to a green energy wave coming in Colorado.
No "green wave" in the 2018 midterms.

The war on energy moves to the states.
Xcel energy claims that wasting billions will save Coloradans money. CFACT student pollsters found that students see through this nonsense.
Why did the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service waste over 100 million taxpayer dollars to save the Preble's meadow jumping mouse from extinction when the little critters are alive and well from Colorado to Alaska?
