30% Renewable Energy by 2020

Colorado will get 30% of its energy from clean, renewable sources by 2020 thanks to a bill that Environment Colorado helped write and pass in 2010. Our report, “Investing in the Sun,” showed that producing 1,000 megawatts of clean energy would cut as much global warming pollution as taking 670 million cars off the road, and would create more than 23,000 local jobs.
