New Colorado Law Calls for Municipal Green Power Options

March 2007 - On March 27, Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter signed House Bill 1281 into law, which doubles the state's renewable energy portfolio standard (RPS) and requires municipal utilities to offer an optional pricing program that allows retail customers to support emerging renewable energy technologies through utility rates. The RPS requires investor-owned utilities to obtain 20% of their electricity supplies from renewable sources by 2020 and sets a 10% renewable energy goal for the state's municipal and rural electric cooperatives.
