DENVER — Tuesday, Oct. 10, 2017 — Gov. Hickenlooper issued the following statement on the Environmental Protection Agency’s repeal of the Clean Power Plan.
“Here in Colorado, clean energy is not a partisan issue: 95 percent of Coloradans want to see our state move toward a cleaner energy future,” said Governor John Hickenlooper. “Clean energy is an economic engine for our state and for our nation. These are well-paying jobs, most of which cannot be automated or shipped overseas. At the same time, renewable energy can actually lower customers’ energy bills. We have already set greenhouse gas reduction goals that would go beyond those set forth in the Clean Power Plan. We know it’s good for Colorado jobs, for our economy, and for our health.”
