Boulder’s Energy Future: ‘Business Matters’ events scheduled
The City of Boulder recognizes the importance of informing and engaging the local business community in the decision about the future of Boulder’s energy supply. In response to questions, the city is holding four ‘Business Matters’ meetings to provide information on the research and analysis to date, and to gather feedback.
These events are being co-sponsored by the hosting businesses and the Boulder County Business Report, and the city appreciates their support.
The city is also holding the first two of its ‘Coffee Meetups’ series in late May and early June. These offer a more informal opportunity to receive status updates, ask questions and provide feedback. Scheduled events include:
Additional ‘Coffee Meetups’ will be scheduled throughout the summer and will be posted on the project website.
Boulder’s Energy Future goal is to ensure that residential, business and other institutional customers have access to safe, reliable energy that is competitively priced, increasingly clean, and is as locally produced as possible – giving customers more choice and control in their power.
The city’s energy team is focused on gathering the facts and data needed to inform decisions about the best option for the community. While no decision has been made about how to accomplish this goal, analyses that take into account Boulder’s specific objectives are underway. Currently, three options are being explored:
The city began receiving reports from consultants and committees who are studying the options in April. Over the next few months, council will evaluate the information and determine whether to put any measures on the ballot for voter consideration in November.
