Act Now: Tell the PUC to Uphold Boulder’s Right to Municipalize
On November 4, 2015 the Colorado PUC is scheduled to hear Xcel’s Motion to Dismiss Boulder’s application for separation from the Xcel system. We hope you will express your support for the City of Boulder with a short message to the PUC and if you can, by attending the actual proceedings (business attire is best.)
Boulder has a clear Constitutional right to form a municipal utility, but of course Xcel would like to stifle that right in its effort to maintain its monopoly status and to continue to provide electricity that is dominated by coal and natural gas.
If you believe Boulder’s Constitutional right to municipalize should be respected (and/or think we can do better than 30% renewable energy!), then please send a quick note to the Colorado PUC.
