Every day working families face real, difficult decisions. From housing to food and health care to transportation, the costs for families across the state are increasing. Housing costs alone have increased statewide over 41% and our families must face tough choices to meet all of their needs on their monthly budget. One cost that families have a real opportunity to control and reduce could be their monthly electricity bill, should the Colorado Public Utilities Commission approve the solar settlement currently before them. The settlement is supported by consumer groups, renewable energy companies, state agencies, and Colorado’s largest electricity provider, Xcel Energy.
