Public Policy Advocacy

Legislative and Regulatory Overview

Since we connected our first customer our mission has been the same: to provide our customers will reliable power at affordable prices.

Our costs, however, often are impacted by decisions made by the Colorado legislature, Congress and federal regulatory agencies. Like any other business, cost increases wind up getting paid for by the customer. As IREA customers, our board members are keenly aware of what higher rates can do to a family or business budget.

Keeping costs low is a key reason we engage policymakers at the state capitol each year – to safeguard customers against legislation that will have the effect of driving up rates. Also, we are always concerned about legislative proposals that could hinder our ability to provide reliable electric service.


Your voice matters!

From time to time we may ask you to contact your State Representative or Senator or member of the US House or Senate. When you communicate with your legislators, your voice can increase the impact we have on our legislative efforts. Together we can make a difference.
