Depending on what city/county you could call the electricity provider for that area and ask them. I live in Eagle County, mine is Holy Cross Energy, not sure about the front range providers.

You might wish to contact the Colorado Public Utilities Commission ( Public Utilities Commission Home Page ). They should have records of rate filings, etc.

Conor, is there a particular area that you are looking at? We may at least be able to steer you to the energy provider that you could contact.

As a generalization - if you call Xcel energy, they can provide you the high, low and average use/bill for a property for the prior 12 months based on that household's consumption. They can't give specifics. Some towns and cities may have their own municipal utilities, which case you'd have to contact them, but again, Xcel would be able to tell you if they do or don't provide service for a property and tell you who to contact.

Many areas of Colorado are not served by Xcel. They may be served by municipal utilities (example, Colorado Springs), or--in rural areas--often by electric cooperatives. You really have to know an exact location. In many places, properties literally across the road from each other may be served by different electric utilities.

Yes, I did mention that; besides Xcel would be able to say if they service a particular place or not and most likely tell you who to contact. One can also just call the local municipality and ask who provides utilities for the area, again, they should be able to point a person in the necessary direction.

One thing to keep in mind is that the BILL is not always indicative of the RATE. For example, in Colorado Springs (served by Colorado Springs Utilities), in the summer time, HALF my bill is just having a gas and electric meter. In Denver (served by Xcel), the rate may be higher, but the bill lower because they do not charge as much for just having a meter. Xcel will provide the high/low/average information if you give them an address. I do not know about the other utilities.

"Readiness to serve" base charges can vary quite a bit among utilities. Residential KwH rates are typically running around 10-13 cents per KwH with an upward trend as companies renegotiate contracts from various generating companies or as they recognize increased generating costs from their company-owned generation plants.
