"Artists, students, activists and other community members organized by Community Power and its partners are gathering this morning for a slow-motion demonstration at Xcel Energy's Headquarters. The protest is in response to the utility's staggering delays in processing community solar gardens. At the 11:30 am demonstration, participants will ask Xcel to live up to their "responsible by nature" slogan and comply with their legal obligation to approve solar applications within 90 days."
"As of October 5, 2015, Xcel has received 1,662 solar garden applications, of which it has deemed 607 complete, five have been approved. Only one very small (35kW, about enough for six homes) solar garden has been constructed to date."
