Xcel Energy inks 5-year service agreement with Power Engineers

Xcel Energy has signed a multimillion-dollar five-year agreement with Power Engineers for transmission, substation, communications and protective relay services.

Power has worked with Xcel Energy on projects such as CapX2020, the largest development of new transmission capacity in the Midwest region in more than 40 years. 

More recently, Power worked with Xcel Energy to relocate two underground transmission lines and make way for the largest stormwater project in Denver’s history. 

Other projects with Xcel Energy and its subsidiaries have included upgrading substations to meet NERC critical infrastructure protection standards and supporting cybersecurity upgrades and a significant replacement of communications circuits.

Power is one of two firms to receive a master service agreement contract this year. Peller attributed Power’s success to a unique teaming agreement with HDR, Inc., substation and transmission line engineering consultant.
