Platte River’s legislative and regulatory efforts at the state and federal levels support our mission to provide safe, reliable and competitively priced energy and services, while also recognizing and mitigating the environmental impacts of power generation.
Platte River maintains positive relationships with members of Colorado’s congressional delegation, the governor’s office, the Colorado General Assembly, as well as with state and federal regulators. In addition to direct issue-related communication with governmental decision makers, Platte River is an active participant in trade associations, such as the American Public Power Association (APPA), the Large Public Power Council (LPPC), and the Colorado Association of Municipal Utilities (CAMU).
These associations offer a cost-effective means to participate in legislative and regulatory proceedings. Platte River management and staff actively participate with these organizations to ensure our policy positions are appropriately reflected by these organizations whenever possible.
