As was expected, Boulder and Xcel Energy jointly filed a request Tuesday seeking extra time to file agreements that state regulators required as part of the 2017 partial approval of the city’s plan to separate from Xcel and form a municipal electric utility.

It’s the second time the parties have requested more time. The three required agreements originally were due in December, but Boulder and Xcel asked for, and were granted, another three months to work on them.

That created a new deadline of March 13, which the parties signalled last week they would not be able to meet. In this latest filing, they’re asking for a June 11 deadline.
