The agreement seeks to expand access to clean, renewable power and build a safer, more reliable and resilient energy system. Together, we aim to:
- Achieve 100% Carbon-Free Electricity
This means that all electricity would come from clean, fossil fuel-free energy sources, every hour of every day.
Fossil fuel use to heat space and water in our buildings and power our vehicles are major sources of greenhouse gases and other pollutants. The partnership will help replace fossil-fuel-powered systems with clean, efficient and affordable electric solutions.
- Increase Local Generation of Renewable Electricity
Half of Boulder’s clean energy would be produced close to where it’s used by 2050. The city is aiming for 100 megawatts (MW) of local generation by 2030 and 175 MW by 2050.
Local generation creates jobs and provides predictable electricity prices. It can also improve the resilience of our energy system during extreme weather when paired with battery storage. Learn more about our local generation goals and track our progress on our data dashboard.
- Ensure a Safe, Resilient and Reliable Energy System
This includes replacing aging or inadequate infrastructure to make sure our energy system can withstand extreme weather events brought on by climate change.
- Create Innovative and Equitable Solutions for a Diverse Community
Identify projects, programs and initiatives that ensure all community members have equitable access to affordable energy. The partnership will also create opportunities for underrepresented populations to participate in, be heard and experience benefits.
