Statement posted on September 19, 2017

Fort Collins has established itself as a leader in sustainability, with its progress to date and ambitious future goals of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The Fort Collins Sustainability Group, as a member of Fort Collins Partners for Clean Energy (FCP4CE), urges the City to increase the pace of its emissions reductions by setting a goal of 100% clean, renewable electricity by 2030. Achieving such a lofty goal will be challenging, but we urge the city to make the pledge to take it on.

PRPA's Carbon-free Study a Laudable Endeavor

Published in the Fort Collins Coloradoan on August 29, 2017

The residents of Fort Collins, Loveland, Longmont, and Estes Park have increasingly been calling for their municipal utilities to move toward providing 100 percent renewable electricity in order to do our part to address the climate crisis. These cities all receive electric power from the Platte River Power Authority (PRPA). In a “Viewpoints” column published on Aug. 20, PRPA CEO Jason Frisbie and PRPA Board Member and Fort Collins Mayor Wade Troxell describe how they are responding to these calls by embarking on an ambitious study of how PRPA might deliver “100 percent (net) carbon-free” electricity to all four cities by 2030.

Story Subjects' Climate Claims Don't Hold Water

Unlike the Coloradoan, we chased down their claims via multiple climate scientists, and suffice to say they were convincingly debunked.
