    Cost competitive

David Eves, CEO of Public Service Co. of Colorado, a unit of Xcel Energy (XEL), told the Denver Business Journal that this is the first time his utility has seen solar projects as being cost-competitive with natural gas-generated power. And this is "...without considering carbon costs or the need to comply with a renewable energy standard -- strictly on an economic basis," he added.
