Reviewer 625 - Did not apply
We did not fit the Foundation's grantmaking criteria. However, we did make contact with the Community Relations person for our region (see Xcel's website) who met with us and with whom we had an excellent conversation. We raised a local issue on which Xcel's work practices have a significant impact, and the Community Relations really listened and asked good questions.
