Anita Seitz, president of Colorado Communities for Climate Action, urged the Colorado Public Utilities Commission to accelerate the closure of two more coal-fired power plants in Colorado, and replace them with clean energy resources, which now are less expensive than ever before.
Colorado Communities for Climate Action has written a letter to the members of the state’s congressional delegation, urging Congress not to repeal or undercut tax incentives for electric vehicles and for clean electricity from wind, the sun, and geothermal resources. Keeping the current clean energy incentives is important for our climate, for public health, for people’s pocketbooks, and for the economy.
Colorado Communities for Climate Action is a new coalition of local governments that advocates for state and federal policies to protect Colorado’s climate for current and future generations. In a year and a half since being launched in May 2016, CC4CA has already begun making a difference.
CC4CA is standing up for the federal tax credit that supports the development of wind energy, in the face of a congressional move to undercut it.
CC4CA submitted comments on November 3, 2017, to the Colorado state government on its draft update to the Colorado Climate Plan — recommending a new long-term state goal for reducing heat-trapping emissions, an actual plan to meet the state goals, and a quantitative analysis to show that new actions will meet the state goals.
