Boulder Campaign for Local Energy

August 24, 2011 by Real Goods in Community with 1 Comment

Boulder, CO residents:

Join us in Boulder’s campaign for clean local energy! This is a historic opportunity to champion renewable energy and push the envelope further than any renewable goal in the nation.

The City of Boulder, Colorado wants more aggressive clean energy goals than current utility provider Xcel Energy has planned, and wants to take its energy future into its own hands to realize them. Boulder has always been on the leading edge of the clean energy movement and is ready to take the next step by creating a municipal utility that will generate more power locally and with clean, renewable sources.

A fundraiser is being held Tuesday, August 30 to help create momentum behind this movement. The issue will be placed on the ballot for voter consideration in the November election. Backed by local solar power providers and leading Colorado renewable energy champions, the event hopes to raise $15,000 in donations to support the ballot initiative. Come lend your support or simply make a tax deductible contribution. Together, we can steer Colorado’s clean energy portfolio!

Come join this historic cause!

Contest where you can win a smart electric drive (3 year lease) plus a solar recharging station which is pretty cool ... only negative I see is that it's limited to who all can enter ... as I don't personally live in any of those states I'm out.

  • Harry Simmelink: I agree, but people need to understand that adding Solar to their home is an asset that will increase the actual value of their property if / when they choose to sell. With the environment the way it is going we are unable to ignore any product that offers free energy at no cost to both the buyer and more significantly the earth!
