Colorado Public Utilities Commissioners to Hold Regional Outreach Meetings

Denver, CO – Commissioners of the Colorado Public Utilities Commission (PUC) are reaching out to statewide constituents beginning Thursday, July 21 regarding utility issues and future gas clean heat plans to be submitted by regulated utilities.

Commissioners Eric Blank, Megan Gilman and John Gavan are inviting the public to attend these community meetings to discuss the future of gas usage and clean heat requirements for gas utilities.

What are Clean Heat Plans?

Gas distribution utility companies are now required to submit “Clean Heat Plans” to the Colorado PUC beginning in 2023. Each plan must demonstrate how the gas utility will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by four percent in 2025, and 22 percent by 2030, based on a 2015 baseline. Plans can include numerous options to meet regulations. (For more information on Clean Heat Plans, click here:
