Northern Colorado Partners for Clean Energy (NCP4CE) is a coalition of organizations in the four municipalities that own the Platte River Power Authority (PRPA). We have a shared goal of transitioning PRPA to 100% renewable electricity by 2030. NCP4CE is a committee of the Colorado Coalition for a Livable Climate, but retains autonomy with regard to its work with the PRPA and all local initiatives.
The member organizations of the NCP4CE are:
Estes Valley Clean Energy Coalition
NCP4CE works within the PRPA owner municipalities to educate and advocate for transitioning from fossil fuels to clean energy resources. To date, coalition members have been instrumental in convincing the municipal governments of Longmont, Fort Collins, Estes Park, and Loveland to adopt the goal of 100% renewable electricity by 2030.
The group was formed in the spring of 2017 and has already achieved several significant accomplishments, including:
- Advocating for a feasibility study of how to provide all four owner municipalities with net zero carbon electricity by 2030, which culminated in the release of the PRPA’s “Zero Net Carbon Portfolio Analysis” in December 2017;
- Successfully lobbying the Longmont City Council to commit to 100% renewable electricity by 2030 in January 2018;
- Releasing the NCP4CE/Energy Strategies “Critique and Recommendations for Future Analysis” of the PRPA’s “Zero Net Carbon Portfolio Analysis” in March 2018;
- Successfully lobbying the Fort Collins City Council to commit to 100% renewable electricity by 2030 in October 2018; and
- Successfully lobbying the Estes Park Town Board to commit to 100% renewable electricity by 2030 in November 2018.
- Successfully lobbying the Loveland City Council to commit to 100% non-carbon electricity by 2030 in December 2018.
