Project Overview


Project Overview

Xcel Energy proposes to install a new 5-mile-long, 24-inch-diameter natural gas pipeline in Adams and Denver counties, known as the North Metro Natural Gas Pipeline Project.

The pipeline will begin at the existing Cherokee Power Plant located near 58th Avenue and York Street in Adams County and end near 43rd Avenue and Cherokee Street in Denver. To learn about the project routing process, please visit our Pipeline Routing page.

The new natural gas pipeline is part of our commitment to system modernization in the project and surrounding areas.

The North Metro Natural Gas Pipeline Project will provide safe, reliable service to our current and new customers in Adams and Denver counties. The project will also accommodate future growth and development and limit the need to replace existing smaller pipes in the gas delivery system.

The project is currently in the permitting process with Adams and Denver counties. For additional information on the project permitting process, please visit our Permitting Information page.
