# RES amendment posted

Posted by .

For those who want to dig deep into the renewable electricity legislation, yesterday’s committee amendment has been posted. All utilities but Xcel are required to generate 25% of their electricity from renewable sources by 2025.  Xcel is 30% by 2020, but they do get to count their previously mandated amounts. Surprisingly, the legislation appears to mandate that Xcel achieve that 30% with 25% being wind power and the other 5% being something else.  I’m off to a meeting now, so perhaps more to come later.
