One of the best ways to experience the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon is by volunteering!

The event features student teams providing free public tours of their solar powered, energy and water efficient houses featuring cutting-edge technologies; a sustainability expo; professional, and consumer and middle school education events.

The U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon is a collegiate competition of 10 contests that challenge student teams to design and build full-size, energy-efficient, solar-powered houses. The winner most successfully blends design excellence, smart energy strategies, innovation, and market potential. 

As a volunteer, you might serve as a greeter, docent, visitor liaison, or education day mentors. Once you have registered, you can select your shifts and be informed when your volunteer webinar training is scheduled.

October 5th – 9th & October 12th – 15th, 2017

61st & Peña Station (on the University of Colorado A line commuter rail near Denver International Airport).

Notice of change in procedure for Denver gas inspections- 


Currently Denver inspections for gas are called in by the customer or plumber themselves, which is unique to Denver compared to other municipalities, but I wanted to let you know that starting 9/28 Denver will be sending the inspections to us directly. This means that they will now work like the electric inspections and the customer will not need to contact us on the gas inspection any longer in the City of Denver.

January Update: PSCo Distribution is working to increase our external design resources to help accommodate anticipated increases in 2017. The target for increased resources was 20-30% and has yet to be precisely determined. Currently we are in the midst of that transition and expect to be at that 20-30% overall increase by the end of Q1; thus far we’ve increased by approximately 10%. As with any resource transition we expect adjustments to resource levels as volume dictates and will communicate those as applicable as our goal is to maintain our level of service to our customers.
