On Tuesday, April 16th, 2013, the City of Boulder will be holding a public hearing to decide whether to move forward on a municipal utility. The hearing will be held at the Council Chambers, 1777 Broadway Street at 6pm.
Boulder City Council released a report on February 21st, 2013 updating the progress on research devoted to the creation of a municipal electric utility. The report concluded that a shift from a private to a municipal utility company could: lower utility rates (for residential, commercial, and industrial sectors) projected over an estimated 20 year span, maintain levels of system reliability, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than 50 percent through an increase in renewable energy production (by more than 54 percent).
