Panel Overview

The City of Boulder and Xcel Energy selected 18 community members to serve on the inaugural Community Advisory Panel, which will meet at least quarterly to review and discuss energy issues and provide feedback on the Xcel Energy partnership.

The advisory panel will connect the community to the new partnership by representing electricity and gas customers in Boulder in both residential and commercial sectors. The panel will review project proposals, gather perspectives on community impacts and make recommendations to the partnership’s Project Oversight team.

The Community Advisory Panel is not an official city board or commission.

Meeting Topics

In Summer 2021 the team conducted development work, including familiarizing themselves with the energy partnership and efforts to-date.

The first official business meeting will be held in the fall 2021.
