Xcel Dispute

CORE Takes Legal Action Against Xcel to Protect Members

We would not have done what we did today unless we thought it was absolutely necessary to protect our members’ interests.

Jeff Baudier, CORE Chief Executive Officer

Important Update from the CEO

Dear CORE Member,

Today, we filed a lawsuit on behalf of our members against Public Service Company of Colorado, a subsidiary of Xcel Energy, Inc (Xcel). The lawsuit alleges that Xcel breached its contractual obligations related to delivery of power to CORE from the Comanche 3 power plant located in Pueblo, CO.

We are committed to providing affordable, reliable power to you. Xcel’s breach of contract unjustifiably increased our power costs and damaged an asset co-owned by CORE. This suit is necessary to hold them accountable.

We only pursued this course of action after many months of attempted business resolution and extensive consultation with our legal and technical advisors.

We will continue to keep you updated with relevant details as this case progresses.


Jeff Baudier
