BOULDER, Colo. – Last night [December 6, 2016], the Boulder City Council approved a measure to transition to 100 percent clean, renewable electricity by 2030. The Council considered the move as a major step toward reaching the city’s longer-term goal of reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent by the year 2050.

Sarah Huntley, the city’s deputy director of communications, said Boulder is taking conservation efforts, which typically ask people to use less energy, in a different direction.

“What we’re trying to do is shift to renewable and clean electricity, away from fossil fuels that have harmful greenhouse gas emissions and toward cleaner renewable sources that we actually could use in abundance, if we have been able to make this transformation,” she explained.
