Xcel Energy filed its monthly report for the Community Solar Garden program with the Public Utilities Commission last week, revealing that 24 projects are moving to the beginning stages of construction.

Xcel also reports that, “after receiving over 600 applications in the surge to submit co-located projects, the pace has slowed considerably.” There are currently 615 applications in the interconnection queue and 925 applications being reviewed for completeness, but the utility believes that “many of these projects in the application stage are ‘placeholders’ that may not be actively pursued by developers.” Xcel adds that “63% of pending applications are in the application stage, 35% are either being studied or waiting for payment, and 2% have moved into construction.”

The report contains information on applications deemed incomplete or for which Xcel has not met the Section 10 tariff interconnection process timeline, in compliance with the PUC’s August 6, 2015 Order. It also discusses the study queue process and the application system. Xcel reports that one project has completed the interconnection process and is now in production, with 60% small commercial and 40% residential subscribers.
