    PIPELINE BUILDER REJECTS KEYSTONE DEAL ON COST TransCanada Rebuffs EPA’s Call for Keystone Clean Energy

    Jim Snyder & Jim Efstathiou Jr., July 18, 2013 (Bloomberg News)

    “The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says TransCanada Corp.

TransCanada first applied for a permit for the project in 2008…” click here for more

The utility says NEM incentives ultimately are paid by non-solar customers across Xcel Energy’s service territory in Colorado…[and] the utility is requesting that the solar customers’ net costs - the benefits they receive less the costs Xcel Energy avoids as a result of their solar systems - be clearly spelled out…” click here for more
