Solar power is growing so fast in Colorado that goals once considered ambitious are now seen as readily achievable, according to a new report by Environment Colorado Research & Policy Center.
“We can get to 20% solar in Colorado by 2025 if we just keep our foot on the accelerator,” said Kim Stevens, Campaign Director of Environment Colorado. “That’s a small fraction of what’s possible, but it will make a big difference in the quality of our lives and the future of our planet.”
Over 11,000 Coloradans, Colorado farmers and businesses, join more than 800,000 Americans and 250 small businesses support restoring Clean Water Act protections to all of the nation's rivers and streams, Environment America said on a key deadline to submit comments.
The report, “Driving Cleaner: More Electric Vehicles Mean Less Pollution,” shows that electric vehicles could prevent more than a million metric tons of climate-changing carbon pollution annually in the United States by 2025.
Today, the Environmental Protection Agency proposed the first-ever federal limits on carbon pollution from power plants, the largest single source of global warming pollution in America. Environment Colorado enthusiastically applauded the proposed limits, which once finalized will be the largest step the U.S. has taken to combat global warming.
