Rally for Ratepayer Relief

April 12, 2023 @ 12:00 pm 1:30 pm

Please join us and allies Wednesday, April 12 at noon for a Rally for Ratepayer Relief! We are calling on our legislators to support legislation to help Colorado get off ‘natural’ gas and lower utility bills!  

Reliance on fossil gas is hurting our pocketbooks and overheating our planet! It’s expensive, volatile and a powerful greenhouse gas. Extracting gas through fracking poisons frontline communities. Climate scientists have made it clear that the time is NOW for a rapid transition off fossil fuels to keep global temperature rise below 1.5C.

Please RSVP and invite friends to help us turn out a good crowd to show that it’s time to make utilities, not consumers, responsible for continued investments in fossil fuel infrastructure! Here is the Facebook event

What: Rally for Ratepayer Relief

When: Wednesday, April 12th at noon 

Where: West Steps of the the State Capitol (200 E Colfax, Denver)

Why: Tired of rising energy bills and rising global temperatures? The price spike is driven by gas prices – but utilities are continuing to invest in expensive new gas infrastructure all the while knowing it’s causing our families’ bills to be a mile high and worsening the climate! 

RSVP and invite friends: Here’s the Rally for Ratepayer Relief Facebook event or email Valley@350colorado.org (if you’re not going to RSVP on Facebook)

Bring: Your utility bill with you too (online or on paper) to show lawmakers how much costs have increased this year! Join us at 11:30 to make signs and posters or bring one, if you’d like!

Join us at the Capitol for a rally to tell state lawmakers to take action and end the outrageous bills! 

No Coloradan should have to choose between heating their home and putting food on the table, it’s time for utilities to invest in cleaner, cheaper energy and lower ratepayers’ bills. Fortunately a special committee has been meeting to find solutions, now we need to show up and make our voices heard to ensure they act.

This rally isn’t only about action, it’s also about relief: experts will be on-hand to help you address your high bills, including ways to apply for financial assistance.
