Xcel Energy is more than an energy company. Every day, we power millions of homes, businesses and communities with energy across parts of eight Western and Midwestern states – Colorado, New Mexico, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Texas, North Dakota, and South Dakota. Headquartered in Minneapolis, we are an industry leader in delivering renewable energy and in reducing carbon and other emissions. We’re reinventing how we power communities and redefining how we care for customers around the country. Our commitment to provide 100% carbon-free electricity by 2050 is bold and electric vehicles are going to benefit from that mission as we power them with our increasingly clean, affordable energy. As of 2020 we are over halfway to our goal.
Xcel Energy’s electric vehicle vision is to power 1.5 million EVs in the areas we serve by 2030. We’re committed to making electric transportation accessible to drivers, businesses and communities by not only providing the clean, affordable energy that fuels them but, importantly, helping our customers with programs designed to make the transition easier. When achieved, our EV vision is expected to result in $1 billion in annual customer fuel cost savings, 30 times more EVs on the road and about five million tons of carbon emission reductions from the transportation sector annually.
