Project Communications

Xcel Energy developed a comprehensive planning process that integrated public outreach and community meetings to gain public input for consideration in the planning process. A Community Working Group (CWG) was established, comprised of local citizens with diverse interests, to work with the project team throughout the planning studies.

The Xcel Energy project team reviewed public comments, land uses and environmental characteristics of the study area and developed a planning approach that considered constraints and opportunities for siting the new Collins Street Substation and routing the new 230-kV transmission line from the WAPA Ault Substation to Cloverly Tap.

Videos and materials from the public Open House meetings are available below in the "Public Open Houses and Community Working Group" accordion. Historic public outreach activities are captured in the below downloadable timeline graphic.
