Xcel Energy Project Background

This project is the Xcel Energy Sherco Units 1 and 2 Life Cycle Study.

Project Background
On July 1, 2013, Xcel Energy filed its Life Cycle Management Study for Sherburne County (Sherco) Generation Station Units 1 and 2. The Study was filed pursuant to the Commission’s November 30, 2012 Order in Xcel’s 2011-2025 Integrated Resource Plan (Docket No. 10-825).

The Study was ordered to examine the feasibility and cost-effectiveness of continuing to operate, retrofitting, or retiring Sherco 1 and 2. The Study assesses the impact of recently finalized and likely forthcoming Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations and provides cost estimates of the pollution control equipment which could be required at Sherco 1 and 2.
