Support CEA at upcoming PUC Hearing!

WEDNESDAY November 6th: PUC Public Hearing 
1560 Broadway, Suite 230, Denver CO 4:00-6:00 PM

Please come to tell the PUC not to let Xcel fund fossil fuel investments with our state’s money! We would love to have you at one of the trainings below . . . 

October 21st 2019, 6:00 PM
Meadows Branch Library
4800 Baseline Ste C112 Boulder, CO 80303

October 30th 2019, 6:00 PM
Standley Lake Library
8485 Kipling Street C112 Arvada, CO 80005

. . . but even if you can’t make either training, please join us at the hearing and help hold polluters accountable for their decisions!

In our regulated monopoly system, we do not get to decide what kind of energy we purchase to feed our homes and businesses. Xcel Energy, the supplier for the Denver-Boulder metro area, has invested heavily in coal, opening its largest and most expensive coal facility in 2010, long after the effects of climate change were well understood. We protested their decision then, and we do not want to see more of our residents’ dollars go to pay off fossil fuel assets that were economically and environmentally unsound. 


save the date: microgrid summit 11/8

When: November 8th, 2019 from 8:30am to 3pm

Where: Independence Institute – 727 E. 16th Ave. Denver, CO 80203 

Please join Clean Energy Action for the first-ever Microgrid Summit on November 8th! Independence Institute Energy and Environmental Policy Center and Clean Energy Action are combining forces to shed light on the increasingly important topic of Microgrids.

Microgrids, which allow individuals and businesses to share the electricity they generate, are a growing global trend in electricity generation and distribution. Join us and our lineup of microgrid experts as we explore this interesting, alternative option to our current centralized grid. Our speakers will discuss everything from what a microgrid is to their wide appeal across the political spectrum as well as what obstacles face Coloradans who may want to invest.
