Boulder, Colorado Mayor Suzanne Jones announced that the city would commit to being powered by 100% clean energy by 2030. Boulder now represents the 17th city in the United States to commit to be powered by clean, renewable energy like wind and solar.
To date, it is the second city in Colorado to make a 100% clean energy commitment, along with Aspen. Salt Lake City in Utah also recently took this pledge.
Boulder Mayor Suzanne Jones was joined for the announcement made this week by Thomas Herrod, Climate and GHG Program Administer for the City and County of Denver, who said that Denver would also undertake plans to examine how to move Denver to 100% clean energy.
“Boulder joins major metropolises like San Diego and Salt Lake City — along with small towns like Georgetown, Texas and Greensburg, Kansas — in committing to 100% clean energy,” said Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune.
He added: “The Sierra Club applauds the City of Boulder, and Mayor Suzanne Jones, for this historic commitment and we look forward to working with more community leaders across the U.S. to accelerate a just and equitable transition to 100% clean energy for everyone.”
