Golden, Colo., Sept. 13, 2000 - A new publication provides Colorado consumers with the tools to select sensible clean-energy solutions. The booklet, Colorado's Clean Energy Choices, provides basic information on green power available today from Colorado utilities around the state. It also outlines how farmers and ranchers can generate their own electricity from wind and solar power. The booklet contains information on clean energy at home and programs to help homebuyers purchase more efficient homes with lower utility bills. Finally, it provides information on transportation options including Colorado's experience with alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs).
It was produced by a partnership of the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the Colorado Governor's Office of Energy Management and Conservation (OEMC). Printing was supported by the Public Service Company of Colorado and by Colorado Clean Cities, part of a national coalition among DOE, local governments and businesses promoting the advancement of clean AFVs.
