FearLess Community Conversation @ 6:30pm
Impact HUB Boulder
1877 Broadway, Suite 100, Boulder
Join our allies for a community conversation with renewable energy and public utility expert S. David Freeman, experienced in running large utilities and directing federal, regional and local energy policies for more than four decades.
They will explore the implications of transitioning our energy intensive civilization to a 100% renewable energy foundation away from fossil fuels. If you’ve wondered if this path is feasible, doable and/or possible, this is your opportunity to inquire.
Presented in partnership with Fearless Revolution, Impact HUB Boulder, and Alliance for Sustainable Colorado this community forum will be facilitated by Seleyn DeYarus, Executive Director, FearLess Revolution.
More About S. David Freeman
S. David Freeman was appointed chairman of the Tennessee Valley Authority by Jimmy Carter in 1977, where he stopped the construction of eight large nuclear power plants and pioneered a massive energy conservation program. When he was the general manager of the Sacramento Municipal Utility District he closed down Rancho Seco Nuclear Power Plant and transformed a utility that was reeling from decades of rate hikes into a model of efficiency, service and innovation. At Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, he started refilling Mono Lake, eliminated coal generated electricity from its resource mix, replacing it with renewable energy and increased energy efficiency.
The author of Winning Our Energy Independence: An Energy Insider, David is a strident spokesperson about the need for utilities to eliminate fossil-fuel-generated electricity with renewables and efficiency. “If we don’t get off fossil fuels the cost of energy will rise and our businesses will get out-competed in the global economy,” he said.
