Transparency of Proceedings before the COPUC re: the Record in Energy Rate Cases
2011 Report of the Task Force on Statewide Transmission Siting and Permitting
submitted to the Governor and Colorado General Assembly pursuant to Senate Bill 11-045
Senate Bill 11-45 indicates that because electric transmission facilities often traverse multiple jurisdictions, compliance with multiple requirements creates the potential for siting and permitting delays or inconsistent decisions. Further, that it is in the state's interest to consider opportunities to improve existing siting and permitting processes applicable to electric transmission facilities, including the possible establishment of a single, statewide siting and permitting process for such facilities.
Senate Bill 2011-45 created the task force on statewide transmission siting and permitting. The task force shall make recommendations to the governor and the general assembly regarding Colorado's existing statutory and regulatory framework applicable to the siting and permitting of electric transmission facilities as well as opportunities to improve that framework.
