Xcel’s “Colorado Energy Plan — Advancing Colorado’s clean energy future” was published last week. Thanks to the passion and dedication of many, Xcel Energy has committed to 55 percent renewable electricity by 2026. While this is a major step in the right direction, we must get to 80-100 percent renewable electricity by 2030, with no significant new investment in natural gas infrastructure. We have an enormous opportunity ahead of us. Use this momentum to contact Xcel Energy and your state and local representation to aggressively move to more clean energy in our beautiful state.
