2006 Triple Bottom Line Report

A report on the social, environmental and economic impacts of Xcel Energy

At Xcel Energy, we provide essential electricity and natural gas services to customers in eight Midwestern and Western states. Millions of families and businesses depend on us to deliver safe and reliable energy at a good value. Our customers care deeply about how that energy is made and the environmental impact it creates. And so do we.

What we do today will have an enormous impact on the next generation and generations to come, so it is imperative that we act now with purpose and vision in each of the areas of our Triple Bottom Line: social responsibility, environmental leadership and economic impact.

In 2006, Xcel Energy was added to the list of companies on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index. For us, sustainability is the ability to meet our present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs. It's working every day to have a positive influence on our customers' and communities' quality of life.

Today, we are the number one wind power provider in the nation. We also operate Windsource®, the nation's largest voluntary wind energy program in terms of customers. We are leaders in emissions reduction programs and innovative technologies. Our company, our customers and our communities all benefit from our environmental leadership.
