Colorado Legislature Kills Renewable Energy Bill

Briefly Noted

2002-02-14 [] Colorado’s legislature killed a bill last week that would have required more solar and wind power in that state. Some lawmakers wanted to require energy companies to generate up to 12 percent of the state’s electricity with renewable sources by 2012 but power company opposition and skepticism among members of the House Transportation and Energy committee killed the bill in that committee. Nearly 90 percent of Colorado’s power comes from coal-fired plants with less than 1 percent currently generated with renewables.
