Environment Colorado praises clean energy focus in state of the state, legislative agenda

Environment Colorado

“Gov. Ritter’s address today shows he will be bold and strong in his last year in office. By putting clean energy investment at the core of the 2010 legislative agenda, Colorado will rebuild our economy with good, green jobs.

“Increasing the renewable energy standard to 30% will keep Colorado ‘open for business’ and ensure we emerge from the recession with a stronger, smarter economy. Environment Colorado applauds the Governor for his continued leadership and vision with this agenda.

“Colorado’s new energy economy has proven to put Coloradans to work across the state, installing solar panels on homes and businesses, manufacturing wind turbines, and operating solar power plants.”
