Failing to address climate change is a threat to our children’s future. We need to take meaningful actions that bolster renewable energy production so we can reduce our greenhouse gas impact. According to the article linked below, Xcel Energy has received bids to meet our electrical needs via solar and wind options at a far lower cost than traditional coal-generated power. This demonstrates the real world feasibility of renewable energy, which is now cheaper to produce per kilowatt hour than natural gas. The clean energy sector is growing rapidly, with every county in Colorado employing people in this industry. Renewable energy is the best path forward for creating jobs, while reducing our energy bills and our impact on the environment. I will fight for our environment and ensure that renewable energy providers get the support they need to help them excel here in Colorado.
