A program proposed by Xcel Energy may increase your energy bill a bit under a new clean energy program.
The Innovative Clean Technology Program would raise $6 million a year for three years starting in 2010.
The money would help to set up and test clean energy technologies in Colorado.
Xcel residential customers can expect to pay about 14 cents more a month and small business owners can expect to pay an extra 24 cents a month.
The first proposed project would test how concentrated solar works with coal generation at the Cameo Power Plant. Xcel still plans to close Cameo Plant as early as 2010.
