Can't find much on which is a better company to deal with. Can anyone give me a little input as to which company you prefer and why? Thanks!

I do not think you will have a choice. The utility company that services the house is the one you will pay every month.

Default No free choice in Colorado

Colorado only has utility monopolies.
There is no way (as there is in Texas) to buy electricity or gas from various suppliers.

In Pueblo West where I live, further west than most, we had no option except to choose which company would supply us with a yard bomb...er... propane tank. Then Colorado Natural Gas came along and offered us service which cost us $100.00 per orifice or as in our case, $200.00, as we only needed to change our furnace and water heater.

To tap into that line after the fact, however, would cost a person something like 3k. Xcel doesn't/didn't service our area, nor the area in southern Pueblo County in the Colorado City area.

We're just glad to have natural gas instead of propane.
