As we close in on the last month before election day, it is important to understand how Colorados energy landscape will both affect and be affected by Novembers elections. What are the energy initiatives that we currently face and what do they mean for the future of Colorado? What is the difference between an amendment, initiative or a referred measure and what does it take to get on the ballot? How do communities build the political will to chart a path towards clean energy? Join us on October 4th to learn from Front Range energy and ballot experts to help us decode what is on, or in some cases not on, the ballot as it relates to energy, and explore the future of Colorados energy policy.|
Presented by the Wirth Chair in Sustainable Development and Alliance for Sustainable Colorado.
