Colorado’s San Luis Valley rips with solar potential but lacks a way to get the electricity to market. What will it take? A conversation is beginning at the Colorado Public Utilities Commission.
Tiny now, like a pebble, lithium-ion battery storage in Colorado will soon be like a boulder. What else is needed to complete this emissions-free jigsaw puzzle?
Several counties on Colorado’s Western Slope have been told to expect many proposals for major solar projects in the next 3-5 years. Here’s why.
United Power has joined the Southwest Power Pool, solar trade group lauds Morgan County, and Colorado’s new transmission group slow to get off ground.
A solar company planning a solar farm on the edge of Pueblo played by the new rules. It wasn’t enough. Neighbors said no way. So did county commissioners.
Solar companies have been struggling with supply chain issues, the most profound being an investigation into possible violations of import policies from China.
Colorado lawmakers in 2022 won’t match the breadth and depth of their legislative decarbonizing efforts in 2019 and 2021. But meaningful work is underway.
Colorado a century ago was poorly connected by roads. Its electrical utilities still are poorly linked. Why they need energy markets.and how that may happen.
This is the energy transition, messy and complicated, with much to like—but also much about which to disagree.
Transportation and building emissions will top the energy and climate agenda as Colorado legislators seek to advance work on ambitious decarbonization goals.
Like the Continental Divide that splits Colorado waters into those flowing toward the Atlantic and the Pacific oceans, the state’s electrical utilities have decided to go either east or west to take advantage of new or growing energy markets. But will this new seam in energy imbalance markets remain as utilities seek even greater benefits of a regional transmission organization?
