Item 8.01. Other Events

NSP-Minnesota 2020 Wind Repower
On Dec. 23, 2020, the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission verbally approved the repowering of 651 MW of owned wind projects with a capital investment of approximately $750 million as well as a 20 MW Ewington Repowered purchased power agreement. These projects are estimated to save customers approximately $160 million over the next 25 years.

PSCo Transportation Electrification Plan (TEP)
On Dec. 23, 2020, the Colorado Public Utilities Commission verbally approved PSCo's TEP, which authorizes rider recovery of comprehensive new electric vehicle utility programs across residential, commercial, multi-family and public charging sectors. The approval establishes precedent for utility-owned charging infrastructure, chargers and amortization of rebates, including point-of-sale rebates for electric vehicles. The TEP approval authorizes approximately $110 million in spending with budget flexibility of up to 125%, or approximately $138 million over three years.
