To ensure transparency in the acquisition of power generation resources for the benefit of Colorado ratepayers and to promote fairness in electric utility competitive bidding processes, the commission shall, within ninety days after March 29, 2011, commence a rule-making proceeding to adopt rules, applicable after March 29, 2011, to require an investor-owned electric utility that is evaluating or has evaluated an existing or proposed electric generating facility as a potential resource, whether in connection with a commission proceeding or otherwise, to provide the owner or developer of the generating facility, upon request, with reasonable and timely access to the modeling inputs and assumptions that were used by the investor-owned public utility to evaluate the facility and that reasonably relate to that facility or to the transmission of electricity from that facility to the investor-owned public utility. Bidders in a competitive electric resource bidding process shall be permitted access to those modeling inputs and assumptions, as the modeling inputs and assumptions apply to the bidders’ particular facility, in time to ensure that errors or omissions may be corrected before the competitive bidding process is completed. If it is determined that an error or omission, as defined by commission rule-making, exists in the investor-owned public utility’s modeling, the commission shall require the investor-owned public utility to perform additional modeling to confirm that electric generating facilities are fairly and accurately represented in the results of any computer modeling performed by the investor-owned public utility.


In any commission proceeding regarding electric resource planning or otherwise relating to the acquisition of, contracting for, or retirement of electric generation facilities, the commission shall establish procedures regarding the designation and approval of information as highly confidential that protect the public interest and assure that ratepayers receive the benefits of competition and transparency while protecting the trade secrets of computer modeling software producers, independent bidders, and the investor-owned public utility.
