You have the power to help create the Electric Utility of the Future

Boulder's energy supply is one of the most carbon-intensive in the nation.

Through the approval of ballot measures 2b/2c in 2011 and 2E in 2013, voters asked the city to explore different options that could deliver our community clean, reliable, low-cost, local energy.

Over the past year, teams of world-class consultants and community stakeholder working groups began an unprecedented analysis of the challenges and opportunities of possible solutions––including creating a local power utility.
