Coal is our country’s dirtiest energy source, from mining to burning to disposing of coal waste. Our campaign is uniting grassroots activists across Colorado and the country to move America Beyond Coal. The Colorado campaign, along with volunteers, supporters, and allies has a goal of transitioning the state to a clean, affordable energy future that protects future generations from climate change and unjust energy practices.
Over 125 years of fighting has taught us that every voice, every action, matters. Now, more than ever before, grassroots efforts — be they in the city council chambers or the streets — will determine our future.
Colorado recently passed historic legislation giving new tools for transitioning to renewable energy. Together, we’ll will work with major utilities like Tri-State Generation and Transmission, Colorado Springs Utilities, Xcel Energy, and Platte River Power Authority to retire expensive, outdated coal and make the clean energy future a reality.
