Transitioning to Utility-Scale Wind and Solar Through Grassroots Advocacy
A coal-fired power plant on the High Plains of Colorado is owned by four Northern Colorado cities. Residents of these four cities and a young Sierra Club organizer have come together with other groups to form a grassroots coalition that lobbied their city councils and their co-owned utility to transition to clean energy from coal by the year 2030. Hear about one city’s journey to move towards a 100% renewable energy future and how they pulled it off in a conservative community in Colorado. Learn about how the Sierra Club supports communities to move “Beyond Coal” and get to a clean energy future.
