Wind power for Colorado

Colorado generates the 6th-most wind energy of any state in the country: enough to power 500,000 homes. Yet some in Colorado want to end key incentives for wind power—just when we need them most.

Protect Our Parks and Forests From Drilling

As fracking booms across our state, federal officials are close to allowing this dirty drilling in our national forests and near our national parks, such as White River National Forest and Mesa Verde. We have a duty to protect these natural treasures for future generations—not allow them to be turned into industrial wastelands by fracking.

Protect Colorado's Rivers

Polluting industries have put our waters in jeopardy by carving loopholes in the Clean Water Act, leaving 73,000 miles of Colorado's streams open to pollution. Join our call to restore the law's protection to all of our waters.

Go Solar, Colorado

More and more Americans are going solar, meeting more of our energy needs in a way that’s clean and local. Unfortunately, dirty energy companies are putting up new roadblocks at every turn. Our research shows that the cities and states with the most solar power aren't the ones with the most sunshine—they're the ones with the best pro-solar policies. That’s why we’re urging Colorado's leaders to go big on solar and leave dirty energy behind.

Global Warming Solutions

On June 2, 2014, the Environmental Protection Agency proposed a Clean Power Plan that sets targets for states to reduce carbon from their power plants by investing renewable energy and energy efficiency, cleaning up existing power plants, and switching to cleaner fuels. Together with our national federation, we’ve launched a campaign to reach more than 1 million Americans about the local impacts of global warming and the impact President Obama’s Clean Power Plan will have on our children’s future.

Energy Efficiency for Colorado

America's buildings are responsible for nearly half of our nation's greenhouse gas emissions. Energy efficiency programs are the fastest, cheapest and cleanest way to cut the pollution fueling global warming, and save consumers money at the same time.

Conservation Colorado

Our national and state parks are where some of our families’ most unforgettable memories are formed—from our first childhood hikes to our first glimpses of wildlife. While we all know how special these places are, the funds that are meant to protect them are being spent elsewhere.

A Million Solar Roofs

Colorado enjoys about 300 days of sunshine a year, making it one of the best places for solar in the country. We could build a million solar roofs by 2030, but only if Colorado’s leaders act now.
