Energy_Policy_Center_logo_1At the Energy Policy Center, we are agnostic on energy resources. It is our strong belief that the choice of energy resources should come from the demands of the free market, and not from the preferences of policymakers, lobbyists, or special interest groups.

The goal of the Energy Policy Center is to promote a free market in energy production, where no protections, subsidies, or regulations result in energy winners and losers. We advocate that government remain neutral, which then encourages a level playing field. That is the best way to ensure that consumers reap the benefits of a healthy energy market – competition, lower prices, and more options.

    • August 8, 2016

    By John Knetemann and contributors Xcel Energy’s well of public support for the Rush Creek Wind Farm, a $1.1 billion, 95,000-acre wind farm boondoggle on Colorado’s Eastern Plains appears to be poisoned. Conventional wisdom says Xcel’s application along with the so-called public approval process via the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) for the Rush Creek Wind

    If the Colorado Public Utilities Commission (PUC) rushes approval of Xcel Energy’s proposed wind project Rush Creek – as the utility wants – the Commission will not be serving the best interests of Coloradans, Xcel’s 1.4 million ratepayers, or wildlife and, indeed, will have an adverse impact on all Americans. There is nothing to be gained and everything to be lost by allowing the utility to rush this project through without Xcel, interested parties, and others having the opportunity to study its economic and environmental impact.
