NCP4CE Releases Second Review of Platte River Power Authority’s ZNC Analysis

Posted on April 3, 2018

Longmont, CO. Today, Northern Colorado Partners for Clean Energy (NCP4CE) released a second, more detailed review of the Zero Net Carbon (ZNC) analysis that Platte River Power Authority (PRPA) finalized in December of 2017. The new critique, which was prepared by the Salt Lake City-based consulting firm Energy Strategies, clearly demonstrates that the ZNC analysis underestimates opportunities in the rapidly evolving energy marketplace that make transitioning to 100% renewable energy sources achievable by 2030. “In addition to identifying missed opportunities in the ZNC report, the Energy Strategies study will help to inform a path forward for Longmont, Fort Collins, Loveland, and Estes Park to achieve 100% renewable energy by 2030,” said Abby Driscoll, Chair of the Board of Directors for Sustainable Resilient Longmont.

Support 100 Percent Renewable Electricity by 2030

Published in the Fort Collins Coloradoan on January 24, 2018

In response to calls from residents and elected officials of Fort Collins, Longmont, Loveland, and Estes Park to move toward 100 percent renewable electricity, Platte River Power Authority (PRPA) developed and released a “Zero Net Carbon Portfolio Analysis” late last year. The study provides a road map for how PRPA might provide electricity to its four owner communities that would produce zero net carbon, or ZNC emissions by 2030.

The Fort Collins Sustainability Group (FCSG) views PRPA’s study as an important step in the right direction. However, that study does not meet our goal, which is shared by our nine allied organizations in the four communities served by the PRPA, of 100 percent renewable electricity by 2030.

Story Subjects' Climate Claims Don't Hold Water

Published in the Fort Collins Coloradoan on August 15, 2017

Last Friday (8/4/17) Coloradoan readers were treated to the claims of two Forest Service Employees, Karl Zeller and Ned Nikolov. They say climate science is all wrong and they have proven it.

What is startling is that their ridiculously sketchy conjectures, which they’ve been shopping around for a decade, meet the Coloradoan’s standard for a serious page-one article. Unlike the Coloradoan, we chased down their claims via multiple climate scientists, and suffice to say they were convincingly debunked.
